March 26, 2010 The River Valley Photographic Society (RVPS) is a sponsored project of the Hastings and District Lions Club. In May of 2009, Lions club members discussed the possible need for a photographic club as there is a very vibrant artistic community in and around the Hastings area covering the counties of Hastings, Peterborough, and Northumberland. Normally, projects taken on by the various Lions Clubs are very visible ones, such as construction of playing fields, shelters, community buildings etc. However, this time attention was focused on the artistic community and since there was no club of this type in the immediate area, it was decided to give it a try. Well, to everyone’s amazement the club now has almost 50 members who enjoy the benefits of very inspiring and informative meetings. World class photographers and major corporations have made presentations to club members and the programs for the meetings are getting more and more interesting. Word of mouth recommendations now have interested photographers coming from all over to attend the meetings and great socializing events. Our monthly meetings on the third Tuesday of every month (except for July and August) start at 7 p.m. and run generally to 9 p.m. More information on where and when we meet can be found by clicking on the “Meetings Tab” in the menuor by clicking here.
