Lake Effects Arts planning to offer photography class

MANISTIQUE – Lake Effect Arts of Manistique is offering a unique opportunity for those interested in learning more about and improving photography skills. The group will be organized by Mark Zebrowski, member of the Photographic Society of America, the Trilogy Camera Club, and the Arizona Council of Camera Clubs, from whom he has won several awards.

Be a part of this group and get expert advice; learn how to buy photographic equipment and use it with skill; discover where to go to have pictures printed and/ or enlarged; explore the amazing world of photos printed on canvas or metal; share the passion for photography with others.

How many boxes of pictures are stored? How many of those photos should be enlarged and hung on walls or give to others?

One out of hundreds, perhaps? Together, learn to improve those odds to perhaps one out of twenty.

Learn about photographic technique and how to create art, not just snapshots.

The initial meeting for this group will be June 7, at 10 a.m., at the Presbyterian Church of the Redeemer. Registration is not needed, and participation is free to any LECAC member.

For non-members, join online by visiting: www.lakeeffectarts.org/ membership/default.html

For more information, contact Mindy Asp (906) 450-5777 or Stephanie Reese (906) 283-1001.

Michigan will ‘go purple’ to recognize Alzheimer’s

LANSING – Michigan will “go purple” for the month of June, in order to help bring attention to Alzheimer’s Disease, Gov. Rick Snyder announced recently.

“Alzheimer’s is a tragic disease that affects not only patients, but also their families, friends and communities. And as Michigan’s population continues to age, Alzheimer’s will have an even greater impact on our state,” Gov. Snyder said.

Participating State of Michigan department web pages, social media channels, the official Michigan.gov portal and Gov. Snyder’s website will display a purple “M” for the cause.

In addition, facts about Alzheimer’s disease and links to resources for those needing help will be shared via social media throughout the month.

Every 67 seconds, someone in the United States develops Alzheimer’s Disease. It’s the sixth leading cause of death, killing more people than breast cancer and prostate cancer combined.
