50th Anniversary of the OPS!

Anniversaries help highlight and celebrate what was, and point us forward to what is coming.  We are celebrating the 50 years of the OPS by sharing highlights of who we were and what we did in the past, and by anticipating what our Society will do in the future.  We hope you have taken some time to see the photo galleries on the 50th Anniversary page of the website, and the slide show on the home page that displays photos from our very early years.  (Let’s be honest - since we can’t yet know the future, images of what is to come are rather scarce!)


Those photos came from the OPS Archives.  But they aren’t the only OPS memories – YOUR personal memories are important as well. The celebrated poet and playwright Oscar Wilde said, “Memory… is the diary that we all carry with us”.  Do you have some special memories of the OPS – special events or meetings? Special experiences with friends?  Why not share them with us!  If you have a great photo or two, please send them to us so we can display them on a “Member Memory” page.  Be sure to include the location and date for the event/photos.  Everyone will need to check the memory page on a routine basis to see if they are part of special memories.  Please send your photos and captions to our OPS Archivist, Denice Barsness, at  Can’t wait to see what’s out there!

Oh man! What a great collection! So much fun to see familiar faces - and perhaps track hair styles through the ages? I laughed, I teared up, I got very sentimental recalling great memories and great friends. Time to pull out the boxes, or files, for those of you who have fully indexed digital photos - (Jim Gilman) - and send them on to Denice, our Archivist! Your favorite OPS images may be from just last year! We want to see them! I'm sure these images are just a tip of a MOUNTAIN of OPS images since we are all photographers! Please share. Can't wait to see them all!
