September 2019 – Meeting Reminder

The first meeting of the new club year is right around the corner! The September meeting will be Thursday, September 19th at 7 pm. Due to a scheduling conflict, our meeting will be held at the Camp Brewster building instead of the Nature Center. Camp Brewster is just a bit north of the Nature Center on Bellevue Boulevard. We encourage everyone to arrive early and take advantage of the access to Camp Brewster and photograph the surrounding grounds.

Meeting Topic

As we have often done in the past, we will have a slideshow of our members favorite photos of the summer. So please take a moment and send your best summer  3 or 4 photos to us via email. You can send them to either webmaster@fontenelleforestphotoclub.org or to Phil Mininni at philo.pm51@gmail.com. If you can, you should resize the photos to 2000 pixels on long edge. Otherwise, just send the full sized JPEG.

Photo Displays

Judy Dye will be collecting prints for the displays at the Forest and the Bellevue Library. For September, Judy is collecting photos of bugs and reflections.

Please provide the prints in 8×10, 8×12 and 11×14 sizes only and please have your name, what the picture is of and where it was taken written on the back of each print.  Do not mat the picture.

Dues Due!

Photo club dues are due at the first meeting. Please remember to bring in $12 for an individual membership or $20 for a family membership. Also, please ensure that your Fontenelle Forest Membership is current as well.

Looking forward to seeing you all at the Camp Brewster this Thursday, September 19th at 7 pm.
