Longest Night: Homeless Persons’ Memorial Service Held in Hyannis

No one starts out in life planning to be homeless at any age…A Homeless Persons’ Memorial Service was held on the longest night of the year at the Village Green in Hyannis, followed by a bagpipe led procession to the nearby Federated Church. Noted author and columnist Dan McCullough gave a stirring perspective on being homeless…”Amazing Grace” filled the air on Main Street as the bagpiper led the procession…inside the Federated Church names of local homeless people who died this year were read and candles were lit…It’s the first day of winter… more help, hope and housing needed.

As a child, spending summers in North Truro, I thought Cape Cod began at the Wellfleet Drive-In and ended at Provincetown. As a photographer, I now know that all the Cape towns leading to the canal have their own unique beauty and charm.

Roughly 30 years ago, I had the good fortune to work with the legendary photographer Dick Kelsey and as owner of Kelsey-Kennard have specialized in aerial photography as well as landscape/scenic, portraits, weddings, and photographing events on the Cape, the Islands, and beyond.

Photographs from our Gallery in Chatham are displayed in homes and businesses locally and world-wide.

Besides photography I also enjoy boating/ fishing (fish are usually very safe when I’m out there,) gardening and tennis. Cape Cod is a very special place and I look forward to sharing my images with you as I travel about.
