I have narrowed the amount of images I'm taking to Pensacola to 36. I'll be leaving after work on Saturday, about 4:00 p.m. I'll do about half the trip Saturday evening and find a hotel/motel, then finish the trip Sunday and drop off my work. I'll take it easy on the way back, looking for photo op's along the way. Needless to say, I'll have my cameras ready. I have a couple of ideas for photo's. I hope they turn out. It's been a long time since I've been in the panhandle. Film at 11.

I believe we are given spiritual gifts at birth. It is up to us to explore, cultivate, and share those gifts. Having taught photography through Summer Photo Camps and with the Clover 4H of Port St. Lucie gave me the opportunity to minister my talents to younger individuals, and committing to helping children improve their quality of life. I think my services will also aid in building a better community in and around Indiantown and provide opportunities for professional growth through artistic expression. My classes will be designed to nurture each student, developing technical skills and inspire excellence. This will be done through classes, as well as hands on experiences through field trips and assignments. I wish to engage my students, allowing opportunities for expression. I am looking to involve and collaborate with other educational groups such as the Dupuis Preserve and the Lahti Library to increase the recognition for the need of arts programs here in Martin County. I will also encourage local businesses to help build community awareness for the program. Programming will consist of children 10 years old to 18. Classes should contain no fewer than five students, preferably about ten per session, with four to six classes per session. I feel this program can work continually throughout the year. Sincerely, Kevin Boldenow

So I've been awarded a grant for my pictorial history of Indiantown through Women Supporting the Arts/Martin County Arts. I have started printing images for the show, but my income cannot keep this up. I have to wait for that check to come. I know I've got two months yet, but timing is everything. Some of the money I've spent needed to go towards my museum exhibit. I'll be delivering those images in less than two weeks.

Though our history are but moments in time, the study is a continuing process. This process brings our past to light, creating a pride in our beginnings and struggles that strengthen our will to achieve. My exhibit is meant to be such a continuing event. The exhibit will be an impetus. Taking place at the Lahti Library from May 17 – June 28,2014, the next stop for the images will be in the offices of local businesses. Kevin Powers of Indiantown Realty and Jonnie Flewelling, owner of the Seminole Inn would welcome some of the images in their place of business. Jonnie has also mentioned that works of art had been sold at the Inn. This can provide additional funding for the Lahti Library. The images can return to the Lahti Library in the Fall, for a second viewing. This would be a great time to introduce the calendar. I was honored to hear that my images were a big push to create an historical society in Indiantown. I believe this is a great endeavor for the city of Indiantown. Should the historical society find a permanent home, some of my images may find a home there too.
