Tornado Relief, Pioneer Valley Style

At the Indian Orchard Mills Artists Open House, in Indian Orchard, Massachusetts, Lani Giguere (photographer, Longmeadow, MA) and Jeff Groleau (Primary Colour Gallery, Fine Art and Custom Framing, Granby, MA) spent the afternoon of November 12, 2011, contributing to the Tornado Recovery (families recovering from their loss in the  tornado of June 1, 2011).  As Lani said, these folks have lost everything, including family photographs that can never be replaced.  We hope to help them recover, by gifting them a family photograph, professionally  matted and framed.  The families participating, scheduled throughout the day, left with smiles on their faces reflecting the smiles in the photographs that had just been gifted them.  This free event was co-sponsored by Heritage Photography (, Jeff Groleau of Primary Colour Gallery (, Mansir Printing, Holyoke, MA,, Hunt's Photo & Video,, of Pioneer Valley Photographic Artists (
