The focus of this post is the use of our new media system in the large room of the community center. As is typical, the speakers brought the content of their talks in the form of PowerPoint presentations. Everything was set up so that they only had to put a USB drive into a LHPOA supplied laptop and off they went. All one hundred teachers we able to view the presentations with an unimpeded view of the screen. Our projector is now mounted in the ceiling and controls are in one corner of the kitchen. The speakers who were here last year were pleasantly surprised to find the new system which is head and shoulders above (literally) last year’s media cart with its web of cables and electric cords. Despite being a bright, shiny day, the projector delivered a clear, bright image on the screen when the curtains were drawn.
The presentation/media package which consists of ceiling mounted projector and surround sound audio came into play and enhanced the presenter’s performance and the audience’s experience. If you plan of renting the Community Center, please take note that there is new “stuff” in the Community Center and it is available to renters. The Community Center is one of the biggest bargains in the Gettysburg area. Not only do you have state of the art media but also a large, well-equipped kitchen and if wanted, a second smaller room for a small group within a lager group. The current contract form will tell you a lot about what an association member has to do to rent the Community Center. See: https://lakeheritage.org/lakeheritage.org/forms/cc_rental_contract.pdf
