===== ABOUT OUR CLUB ===========================

 

The Woodlands Photography Club meets on the second Monday

of each month from 6:30 to 9 P.M. at the Montgomery County

South Branch Library (just west of The Woodlands Pavillion),

2101 Lake Robbins Dr.  We usually get together in the meeting room

immediately to the left as you enter the front doors.  Visitors and the

curious are always welcome, the odd and weird sometimes, depending

on the weather!  Anyone interested in photography of any type,

no matter what your level of experience (professional, amateur, or

wannabe), is welcome to join our club.  Membership is only $1.25/month

embarrassingly miniscule, we should really charge a whole lot more),

which is $15 paid annually.  That’s the for-real bargain of the year,

folks.

===== PARTING SHOTS ============================

 

All that is necessary for the forces of evil to win in the world

is for enough good men to do nothing.

Edmund Burke

 

Ability is what you’re capable of doing.  Motivation determines

what you do.  Attitude determines how well you do it.

Lou Holtz

 

There is only one success – to be able to live your life in

your own way.
