  • PACC Members display their prints at the Avenidas Rose Kleiner Senior Day Center June 26, 2016
    AAvenidas Rose Kleiner Center
    Avenidas Rose Kleiner Senior Day Center

    The Avenidas Rose Kleiner Center provides adult day care for seniors suffering from Alzheimer’s, dementia, Parkinson’s, strokes or other chronic conditions. The Executive Director of the Center is Tom Pamilla, a long time friend of the Palo Alto Camera Club. Tom believed that his patients would benefit from art on the walls of the Center and requested that the Camera Club have some of its members display some of their photographs at the Center. Several members now have their photographs on display and Tom reports that the patients find the displays interesting and uplifting. Tom is very appreciative of PACC providing art for his patients. In addition to being able to display your work, this is also an opportunity to help bring some joy to the patients at the Center. The patients are at the Center until 2:30 every weekday. Therefore we have access to the Center from 2:30 to 5:00 every weekday to hang photographs or to bring visitors to see our photographs. If you would like to exhibit at the Rose Kleiner Center, contact Jim Colton.
