Brookfield Shooters Photography Group was formed in February 2010 and is a
group of area photographers interested in meeting in an informal setting to
share photography skills. They hope to improve skills by adding to their
knowledge of cameras, learning how to trouble-shoot problems, and improving
printing and display of photographs. The group meets on the fourth Thursday of
most months from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in Brookfield.
Exhibit coordinator Peter
Abate noted that the “Shooters have displayed at the library in the past during
the early development of the group but this display distinctly shows more of
the talent and progression of skills as a result of the group working together
as a team.”
of the group participating in the Gafney May show are Peggy Brewster, Darlene
Bean, Gordon Clark, Tom Lavoie, Mikel O’Brien, Martha Pike, Norman Royle,
Cynthia Towle and John White.

Food Pantry Seeking Volunteers
Do any of you know someone (friend, neighbor, relative) who would be interested in volunteering hours for the food pantry for food pick up and trash removal?
The Food Pantry could use more volunteers with pick up trucks and strong backs to help with picking up of food at various locations, Ossipee, Tamworth and Dover. We also need a volunteer who would take on the responsibility of picking up the cardboard and trash at the pantry and bringing once a week to the transfer station. Please ask potential volunteers to call Janet Miller at 522-5058 and I would be happy to link that person with one of the above activities.
