Some time ago, Sharon was approached by the BUPA Aged Care facility in Traralgon to see if we could assist by presenting on a monthly basis or so, a session about photography for the residents there. I made contact with the BUPA lifestyle team and suggested that initially we could have one or two members attend and make a presentation which would include information about our club with a slideshow of some of our images, and follow that with a slideshow showing holiday photos presented by one of our members. BUPA were delighted with that and have given us some potential dates and times which are:
- 30 June (either between 10 and 11:30 OR between 1:30 and 3:00)
- 14 July (same times)
- 28 July (same times)
At this stage I'm concentrating on preparing for our first outing on one of those dates, but I would be happy to hear from any member who would like to come along and present a slideshow on any topic they like.
Once our relationship with the organisation develops a bit we may be able to branch out a bit and maybe do some dress-ups and actual photo sessions.
So if you are happy to participate in these or any other events please let me know your availability. You won't be thrown in the deep end, I'll make all the arrangements and come along as the club's representative and take care of introductions etc.
This is a great opportunity to be of service to the community and I look forward to hearing from as many members as possible.
