Toronto. My wife and I recently sat in on two funerals via the modern miracle of video streaming. At both, our president Clint Hryhorijiw spoke very knowledgeably about the effect of our society on the deceased.
All too often, we take the president of the PHSC for granted. However; with Clint, that is simply not the case. Still working as a professional photographer, he finds the time to write columns in our journal; prepare and present eulogies; promote the society; participate actively in all events – especially fairs and auctions; encourage others to join the society and its executive; attend all meetings and events; etc. etc.
We tend to shrug off the very difficult task of leading a society such as ours. It is easy to ‘keep the society going‘ for a two year stint as president. It is quite another matter to lead the motley crew of members and executive into new and exciting ventures. Delegation and promotion are arts seldom seen today. Well done Clint! It is an honour to support your work.

“The last 2 weeks has been insanely busy on my side of the fence. I
just and only got all of these videos completed and online for
viewing. Clint did a lovely and fantastic job with his eulogy to my
father, and the video + audio worked out very well for his
“The imagery of my eulogy is best viewed in the “livestream”
version but the audio is terrible. However, the audio is best in my
own video taped version but the images on the computer monitor
cannot be seen all too well.
