Ho! Ho! Ho! You’ve been waiting all year for this—a chance to mix, mingle and watch PHSNE members show and tell about their favorite collection items. Remember Marti’s basement tour last year? What new surprises are in store this time? Join the fun Sunday, Dec 5, 2021 at 2 PM EST (GMT 1900) and see for yourself.
At 2 PM the virtual Annual Meeting will open with the results of the election of PHSNE’s Board of Directors, with introductions to new board members and new officers. The Show & Tell portion will begin at 2:30 PM and finish with holiday greetings, conversations, and a celebratory toast or two. Members, supporters, and visitors are welcome.
A Message From PHSNE President Joel Moses
In 2022, a new president will assume the leadership role in my stead, and I will become immediate past president to assist. The past four years have been truly exciting for me as I learn more about the photographic arts.
With the New Year comes new opportunities for PHSNE to get classic camera equipment and images into the hands of the membership and photo enthusiasts around the country and beyond. As a result of the pandemic, such opportunities declined somewhat, but other possibilities emerged.
With my sales hat firmly in place, PHSNE has expanded online relationships with vintage camera users around the world, finding new homes for photographic memorabilia across the globe via the internet. Some equipment that comes into the warehouse through donations also goes out as donations to classroom teachers and users around New England and to multiple users around the USA and in foreign countries. The number of repeat clients is exciting and rewarding.
My thanks go out to the PHSNE members who have supported activities at the warehouse by keeping it (somewhat!) organized, and uncovering a host of treasures to be put to use by photography aficionados. In the process, lasting friendships have developed and evolved.
I am eagerly looking forward to continuing the work with all of you! Thank you for the support that has been provided!
~ Joel Moses, President
