                The club also held its June meeting via the Zoom app. Members were sent a link via e-mail that they could click on to join the meeting. All together sixteen people participated. The meeting started at 7:08PM with remarks from our President, Judy LaFratta. She reminded everyone that the theme for the July issue of “SHUTTERTALK” is Triangles. Members can send two photos to the Editor, Norma Woodward, and the deadline is June 30. Our club was scheduled to hang photos in the Visitor Center during July and August on the theme of “Fredericksburg”, but it has not opened yet and no ainformation has been available as to when it will reopen. Our Annual Photo Show will take place in May 2021, but a date is still to be determined. Liberty Town Arts Workshop will have a show in July entitled “Hidden Fredericksburg.”


                Our next meeting will be held on Tuesday, July 14, at 7:00PM also via Zoom. The theme will be “A Different View”, and it will be a presentation by Norma Woodward. Members were reminded to check our website and e-mails for news and updates. With reference to the presentation on “Cell Phones”, the question was brought up as to whether it can be done via Zoom. Helen Schwartz was tasked with reaching out to the presenter. There was good feedback on the webinar, “Lightroom Unleashed”, given by Mollie Isaacs. She kept it straightforward, and it flowed well. David Boyd had two of his photographs accepted by the Stonehenge Gallery in Montgomery, Alabama. The club has received mostly positive feedback on the Zoom meetings. Most members feel they have been working well.

                The next part of the meeting was a critique of the photos submitted on the theme of “My Small World”. Forty images were submitted on what members saw these past months during the Pandemic. The photos ranged from those taken on early morning walks, around town and in and around people’s homes. In addition to commenting on the photos, members shared stories about the locations and how and why they took the photos.


                The meeting ended with the suggestion to reach out to those members who are not comfortable with using Zoom and maybe setting up a buddy system to enable them to attend these online meeting until we can return to the Dorothy Hart Center. Unfortunately, there are some members who do not use technology.


The meeting ended at 9:00PM.
