There are 100 residents and they are having a Christmas dinner at noon and inviting family members.  This will be a great event they you will want to shoot year after year. Items needed are:

Print holders to slip the prints in to give to the residents.  Pack of 100.
Someone with a laptop to store all the images, we give the home a CD of all the photos at the end of the day.
Several photographers, some card runners, organizers 
This event is for them.  We do not keep any of the photos and we do not charge anything.  This is a give back to the community project.

Thank you all for participating in the Fairmont shoot.  We photographed 50 residents and had 15 volunteers.  Pat yourself on the back for a job well done.
