Meeting room building projects and the all volunteer crews...


The print display areas on the walls in the meeting room had some problems, ranging from difficulties in putting and keeping the prints up in the displays, to protecting the prints and painted display areas from the changing temperatures of the walls, that was creating a form of condensation moisture between the prints and the walls and was having an effect of warping the prints and damaging the painted display surfaces of the walls. 

Member Richard "Rick" Freridge came up with a solution and great idea that included building some display panels that would eliminate the problems, make them easier to use, increase the actual display areas and improve the quality of the displays. 

So the first part of the job was to remove all of the old display area materials and give the entire room a new coat of paint.  Then the new display panels were installed and ready for the prints. 

The panels have a black cloth covering and the display prints have self adhesive VELCRO® Brand Hook strips attached that fasten and hold them on the panels.  This makes it much easier to arrange and install prints of various sizes and formats.  With all of the wonderful prints from our members, the end result is a marvelous photo display.

Thanks to all that helped on this project and many thanks to Rick Freridge for his great ideas and help.  It is something that we will all enjoy for years to come.

Great job and very well done, Thanks guys.
