A Day in the Life of Warren Community Photo Project





 "A Day in the Life of Warren" is a community photo project that will preserve the collected images of everyday life and create a "visual story" of life in Warren on a single day.
 
 This is the perfect opportunity to showcase your pride in our community by capturing moments that make Warren such a special place to live.  Suggested themes include: work, play, scenic views and architecture...be creative and capture the ways that Warren is unique!
 
Free and open to all Warren residents ages 8 and above*
