Introduction to Photography’s Photowalk in Eganville’s Beautiful Centennial Park with Ottawa Valley Photographers

Thank you for attending our Introduction to Photography class.

We just wanted to take a moment and say thank you because we had such a great time meeting so many people who shared our passion for photography and wanted to learn more about their cameras.  We honestly didn’t know what to expect from the class that we held at the Bonnechere Union Public Library during the month of June, but we were overwhelmed when we had 29 students arrive!  It was such a pleasure to meet you all and Jenn and I are very much looking forward to all the future plans we are making that you want to be involved with.  We really can’t thank you all enough for your feedback as it will help us improve the classes we offer, and it let us know what other types of photography you are interested in.

Many of you want to be involved in a photography club and we really LOVE the idea and we are working on the possibilities of a local photography club that could meet once a month.  Until we can get the details organized Jenn has set up a Photography Club hosted by Special Treasures Group Page on Facebook which you can find here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/580115972028968/ We would love to see your photos and feel free to ask questions, we want you to be involved!

We ended our classes with a photo walk to our beautiful Centennial Park in the heart of Eganville to practice what we had learned.  Don’t forget you can post your pictures from our Photo Walk on the Photography Club group page too!

Stay tuned as we are planning Photo Walks to the Geo Trail and to Shaw Woods, we will let you know the details.

We wanted our students to see things differently than the whole picture and pick out some details that would make beautiful photos from our Photo Walk

Don’t forget you can contact us anytime with questions and suggestions, and we are looking forward to our future Photo walks and will post the details as soon as we get them all sorted out.

Love the details and textures that are found in the bark on the trees in the park.

Under the Sea – Friends of the Library host annual fundraising Dinner for the BUPL

The Friends of the Library hosted their annual fundraising Dinner for the BUPL (Bonnechere Union Public Library) on April 27 2013. This year’s theme was “Under the Sea”

This is the first time we were asked to participate and the evening was really fun! The Legion was transformed in to an under water oasis  and looked fantastic. Some of the attendees wore costumes and the decorations which was the work of a team of helpers were really AMAZING!

The Greek God Poseidon who was portrayed by Chris Hinsperger owner of the Bonnechere Caves made and appearance and presided over the evening…(Great Job Chris!)

The decorations were AMAZING!

George from Frisco’s was on hand serving freshly sautéed shrimp along with a selection of dishes and salads that were made by the Friend of the Library Volunteers.  It was obvious the food was enjoyed by all!

Bonnechere Valley Township Mayor Jennifer Murphy (whose costume was an adorable tiara with the letter “C” …get it?) presented Judy Sauvé with a volunteer award for all her hard work with the many local organizations she is proud to be part of.  Judy accepted the award to a standing ovation!  Now that is Valley Pride!

The evening entertainment was provided by The Red Shoes.

Both wearing their cool Red Shoes, the performed a great selection of Under the Sea music.

 There were games to entertain guests with prizes, and a silent auction.  We enjoyed ourselves and so did everyone we spoke with.  If you have not attended the annual dinner before we recommend you plan on attending next year.  It is not only a fun evening it is really a great cause  to support our local library

I know we can’t wait to see the decorations next year, we are told they get better every year.
