July 8th - MWDC Presents SHARKS: Silent Requiem by Joe Romeiro and Bill Fisher of 333 Productions

Joe Romeiro will present a preview screening of “SHARKS: Silent Requiem”, a film about the beauty and majesty of sharks. Filmed at various locations around the globe, it showcases many of the world’s marquee shark species. Trying to replace fear with facts, Silent Requiem utilizes stunning imagery and sound to show the side of sharks rarely seen. The focus is on the sharks themselves and not the glory of the divers. Shark populations have been in serious decline for decades and the public needs to understand that these creatures need our help to survive. If the negative campaign continues, some species of shark will become extinct in our lifetime. Hopefully, Silent Requiem will help viewers see that sharks are worthy of protection and do not live up to their negative reputations.

Joe has traveled to the Azores, Guadalupe, North Carolina, Bahamas, Socorro Islands, Fiji and locally to film sharks. He enjoys bringing people the beautiful images of the oceans top predator. With the help of top researchers, he has gathered little known facts about sharks with the hope his viewers walk away with something new and an appreciation of preserving sharks for future generations.

Members start gathering in the bar around 6:30pm to socialize and grab a snack, and the actual meeting starts promptly at 7:30pm. During the meetings we will quickly go through the club business and reports, followed by Dive Talk and then a short break. The break is then immediately followed by the feature presentation.

Club meetings are held at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, 1360 Worcester Road, Natick, MA. From the Mass Pike (I90) take Exit 13. Bear right after the toll booth. You'll be heading west on Route 30. At the second set of lights take a left (Shoppers World). You will be going through four sets of lights before you hit Route 9. After (AFTER!) the second set of lights bear left at the fork. You'll then come to the third and fourth set of lights. At the fourth set of lights you will be at Route 9 (the Circuit City will be across the street). Take a left onto Route 9 Eastbound. Very quickly you will see the Crown Plaza Hotel on your right.
