It’s meeting time again! This month’s meeting will be at the Fontenelle Forest Nature Center Forest Room this Thursday, March 16th at 7 pm.
The speaker for our meeting this month will be our judge for this year’s club photo contest, Pat Mingarelli. Pat will be talking to the group about his background and what he will be looking for when he judges our contest in June. For more information on Pat, read his bio on http://www.wildheartphotography.com/About.html.
Here are a few things we will discuss before Pat’s presentation:
Bellevue Library 150th Nebraska Statehood Anniversary Display
The Bellevue Library has asked that we put up a display of photos at the library to help celebrate Nebraska’s 150th birthday. We plan to put up 16 photos in late April or early May in place of our normal display. They would like us to display photos of historical Nebraska. These can be photos of natural features like Scott’s Bluff or Chimney Rock or man-made features like the Old Bellevue Church or Fort Atkinson, for examples. Many of you probably already have photos around Nebraska so we ask for your help to come up with a variety of photos in the State.
Photos would be due at the April meeting on April 20. Photos must be 8×10, 8×12 or 11×14. As usual they are not to be matted or framed. On the back of the photo you are to indicate what the photo is of, where it was taken, and your name.
The library has chosen May 13 as their day to celebrate and we are honored that they would like our help. The photos will be left on display for a couple of months.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Judy Dye at 402-734-3627.
