EARTH DAY BOOTH
Our club again set up a booth at this festival
to celebrate Earth Day, held this year in the Sterling Ridge shopping
center lot. We had numerous signups for our mailing list, several
new members, and quite a few who want to come investigate our meetings
and club. So we have to be on good behavior at the next meeting and
show all these new folks we're glad they're checking us out! SPECIAL
THANKS go to Cecilia Garcia, John Masters, Brenda Driscoll, Ron Bautsch,
and Ken Means for making this event happen for our club.
MONTHLY MEETING & PRESENTATION
Monday, April 14 -- 6:30
to 8:45 P.M.
Presentation by Kelly Catchings, former
Woodlands High School grad, who has photographed many Hollywood
stars. She will show us how to make average folks look like a star
with special photo techniques. Mini-contest theme for this meeting
is WILDFLOWERS. Come see the presentation and help us greet
visitors and new members.
FIELD TRIP TO MERCER ARBORETUM
Saturday, April 19 -- Meet there at 8:30 A.M.
Join fellow members in a well-timed shoot to catch spring flowers
at the height of their blooms. Many other subjects beckon us: bamboo
forest, lily ponds, exotic plants, something for everyone. Email
Ken Means ([email protected])
if you want to hitch a ride or ask questions about this field
The Arboretum opens at 8 A.M. Most of us will be there by 8:30,
and we'll shoot for a few hours until we get gorgeous photos! Then
we'll meet somewhere for lunch and brag about our film or digital
accomplishments, and of course, "the one that got away."
(You can't have more fun than this...)
