From the Chair, November/December 2014

The NYSC Photography Committee lost a true friend, late last summer, with the passing of Marjorie Grimm, director of the Tuesday Evening Hour. For over 20 years, she provided many of our members with their first opportunity to present slide shows to an audience. She encouraged us to put our best images forward and to present them competently and with confidence. Her Tuesday evening shows became another place we could all gather to support our friends and our photography community. Those who had the good fortune to know her will remember her fondly and miss her dearly.

In our continuing quest to expand our Internet presence, we are pleased to announce that the Photography Committee now has a Facebook page. It will be yet another way for members to find out what is going on in our group. We invite you to “Like” our page at https://www.facebook.com/sierraphotonyc. We want to thank Raquel Gonzalez for her work launching the page and keeping it running.

We want to welcome Rebecca Sullivan, the new Rental Space Coordinator for the Metropolitan Opera Guild Learning Center and thank her for continuing the tradition of making our meetings at MOG such an easy and friendly place to gather. She saw to it that our October meeting room was ready to go the moment we got there! I also want to express our best wishes and gratitude to Lacy Upton, who facilitated our meetings at MOG since we began meeting there. She has moved on to become Community Programs Manager for the Boston Lyric Opera.

The Holiday season will soon begin. Join us for our December 17th meeting as we look forward to celebrating with the Sierra Club New York City Group and with you! It’s a members’ night. Bring your best photos!

—Charles Dexter, Chairperson
