Last Light Photo Show & Sale Discontinued
Community Living-Central Huron has decided to discontinue the Last Light Photo Show and Sale; Covid-19 impacted this decision. The event began in 2007 as a partnership between the Huron Camera Club and Community Living-Central Huron. The Huron Camera Club wanted to honour the memory of one of their founding Members, Sarah Mann. Sarah had a deep passion for photography and the community living movement. She became involved with Community Living-Central Huron initially through her position as a journalist and photographer at the Goderich Signal-Star and then as a volunteer. Sarah was very fond to taking photos of the last light of the day, ‘when the sun’s rays were fading and darkness was beginning to set in;’ hence the Last Light Photo Show & Sale was born.
Over the past 13 years, Community Living-Central Huron was very fortunate to have tremendous community support for the Show & Sale; we are very grateful to the following sponsors: Goderich Signal Star, The Citizen, Lighthouse Money Management, MacEwan & Feagan Insurance, Huron County Tourism - Ontario’s West Coast, Your Life in Stills Photography, Carman’s Camera Goderich, Precision Print, Elizabeth Art Gallery and of course the Goderich Public Library that allowed us to host this event for 12 years at such a perfect venue. Special appreciation to all those that entered the contest over the years and the judges for taking the time to select winners in such an array of categories. Categories ranged from “Last Light” and “First Light” of day, rural life, nature, pets, colours, numbers, weather events, moving waters, Huron at Play, Huron County Community Event, etc; over 1,000 photos were submitted through the span of the Show & Sale.
Community Living-Central Huron is very grateful to Lynne and Steve Mann and Jessica (Mann) Loughlin of Lucknow for allowing us to honour Sarah’s memory and passions over the past 12 years. Without their support and dedication to this event increased awareness of the Agency would not have happened. The Agency is so grateful to them for allowing us to honour their daughter and sister- thank you. For the Agency, and I think for the Mann family, it was not just about funds that were raised through this event, it was more about raising awareness and acceptance of all citizens in our community.
