About 30 people met at 7:00 P.M at Bellevue University Humanities Center

Pete mentioned that the club’s website was temporarily down but as of this post the site is back up and running.

Election of Officers: The following officers were nominated and elected:

President: Jay Davis

Vice President: Phil Mininni

Secretary: Eric Scholar

Treasurer: Kathleen Rose

A big thanks to both the new officers as well as Alex Wiles who served as the club president over the last year. Our club would not be as successful and enjoyable without the time that these folks, as well as Judy Dye/Photo Display Coordinator, Donna Gray/Contest Coordinator & Peter Carbonell/Webmaster, dedicate to our programs.

The board will be meeting soon to set the meeting agenda for the upcoming club year. We have received some ideas for meetings, but if you have any ideas please send them to the club email at webmaster@fontenelleforestphotoclub.org.
