I had a meeting last week with Catherine Thornton, facilitator for the Uxbridge Elderly Connection. During that meeting I presented Cathy with a lesson plan for a 5-6 week basic photography course to be offered at the Uxbridge Senior Center beginning May 12 at 6:30 p.m.. We tried to address the special needs of seniors in our community along with the center’s unique ability to accommodate them. The center has their dining hall that seats 50 as well as a 16 passenger shuttle bus and a van to pick up and return passengers to their home and the center.
Depending on the composition of those signed up for the initial class the course will be adjusted by Mr. Bob Mielke to include everyone, novice to expert. Mr. Mielke is a contributing photographer to National Geographic Magazine and photographic instructor.
