This year marks the third annual Calendar Fundraiser held by the Dartmouth Friends of the Elderly with photography by Mark Medeiros. The 2010 calendar features “The Women of Dartmouth” and their favorite hobbies.
“The Dartmouth Friends of the Elderly is a non-profit 501 C organization, and we’ve been around for 20 some odd years. All of the money, every single cent goes to the Dartmouth Council on Aging, and to our seniors in the area.” – Maria Lawton, Vice President of the Dartmouth Friends of the Elderly
The calendar is a major annual fundraiser for the Friends which makes it possible for them to provide programming to local seniors throughout the year. For the third year in a row, Mark Medeiros was in charge of the photography. The photos featured both Mark’s Studio, and On Location photography skill sets.
“The Women of Dartmouth calendar was a fun project and as a pro photographer, I was able to push a little of my creative ideas all the while having a great time with these women. They were all good sports and fun to be around.” – Mark Medeiros
Along with the need for professional photography, the group also wanted something they had never had before: the ability to sell calendars on the Internet.
“In the past two years we have sold out of calendars. For the first time ever you can purchase them online. Again 100% of the proceeds are going to the organization” – Maria Lawton, Vice President of the Dartmouth Friends of the Elderly
Slocum Design Studio came to the rescue, creating a simple, yet elegant website that both displayed the quality of the calendar’s photography and allowed interested customers to purchase their copy online. Or visit markmedeirosphotography.
Copies of the Women of Dartmouth are also available at Mark Medeiros Photography at Slocum Studio, Baker Books, Davoll’s General Store, Dartmouth Town Clerk’s Office, Dartmouth COA, Saltmarsh Pottery, The Village Cafe and Fabulous Foundations by Nancy, as well as for purchase online at the Women Of Dartmouth website.
