The Land of Waterfalls Camera Club owes John Lanier a large debt of gratitude for his past support of our club, exhibitions and programs. We recognize his valuable contributions to the local community. But we are especially thankful for the spirit and cooperation he afforded us when promoting quality photographic art in the county. As editor, he provided public exposure to our many cultural aspects of photography. With his publications, he increased awareness and appreciation of local art talent. The articles he chose to print were successful in inviting others to enjoy photography and get involved.

We will probably never know how many people read about us or clipped and saved the articles from The Transylvania Times, but judging from emails and other positive comments we know that his efforts were effective and were noticed. New members showed up after reading meeting notice publications and the general public visited the art exhibits locally.

John Lanier set a high standard for Derek McKissock to meet, but he provided a great and lasting example of a local newspaper editor’s valuable role in the community. We sincerely extend our best wishes to John in his retirement.
