The Simsbury Camera Club thrives because of the dedicated volunteer spirit of our members. George Zars was one of our past members who exemplified that spirit. In looking to honor his memory, I was inspired to organize this column which will recognize members past and present who have, over time, exhibited participation and volunteerism above and beyond that of the average member. This year the Member Recognition Column will be written by Lou Norton, Judy Rabinowitz and Alene Galin (at times extrapolating information from previous issues of “Focal Point”, by Ben Skaught), will highlight a member about every two months and will be archived on our website for future reference.
Feel free to email me names of deserving honorees.

Frank started participating in Simsbury Camera Club ancillary activities around 2014. He attended a presentation by Nathan Gutman at the Simsbury Library, and pointed out an easier way to accomplish a particular function. Nathan then promptly recruited Frank to give a number of presentations at the Library, and he was a partner with Nathan in planning and leading multi-session workshops at the Library on Photoshop and other topics. [See Nathan’s member recognition article.] When asked what made him decide to join SCC, Frank responded “I didn’t; I got dragged in by Nathan!” But that didn’t stop Frank from full and enthusiastic participation in a whole range of club activities, as you will see further below…
