The annual installation of officers and year-end competition and banquet was held during the LPA General Meeting on June 21. A potluck and social hour were enjoyed by approximately 50 members and guests, which led into the evening’s events hosted by Masters of Ceremonies Lyle Trusty and Dean Webb.
Outgoing president John Shedrick installed the new officers: President – Dennis Goodno; Vice President – Dave Anderson; Secretary – Sue Craft; and Treasurer – Pat Ware.
The year end competition was a showing of all the first place winners throughout the year, vying for “best of the best” achievement. The judging for this competition was by the members in attendance. The winners for the year end competition were:
- Novice – Gary Robinson, “Part Girl”
- Amateur – Pat Ware, “Old Door”
- Adv Amateur – Don Bennett, “Athena”
- Master – Sue Craft, “Bristlecone”
- Slides – Richard Wood, “Kitty Wicks”
Kay Hendrickson announced the next photo competition for September. The theme will be “open”. Also in September will be the start of the Digital projection class.
A generous 50/50 pot was won for a second time in a row by Bertha Plummer.
In addition, Pat Ware had many wonderful gifts to raffle off – just ask 3 time winner Dennis Goodno!
The evening ended with certificates of appreciation and verbal recognition awarded to the many members who contributed to the club in the past year.
Special recognition was also given to 5 past LPA presidents in attendance: John Shedrick, Dean Webb, Dale Ware, Bob Lion, and Don Bennett.
