Jottings April 2022

Tech Savvy Seniors Photographic Presentation.

Martin Yates presented a photographic presentation on the Galapagos Islands during March at the Wider Vision group in Bassendean. His pictorial presentation was well received and the group enjoyed his sometimes comic presentation. Martin also answered questions on using digital cameras and how to take better photographs. At the presentation he encouraged everyone to be more active and as such photography is an excellent way to add a different activity whilst physical distancing. Martin spoke about the programs and services provided by SRCWA including Scams presentations, Computer classes, Have a Go Day, LiveLighter Activity Days, LiveLighter Aged Care Games and acknowledged our valued Sponsors.
