Hope you've all had a great summer and have taken lots of pictures for this years upcoming contests (see our schedule here),
All our registered members should have received a letter in the mail from Jeanne Caron, this seasons President. I'm posting a copy of the letter here for your convenience and also for those who may not be on our mailing list yet. With no further ado, Jeanne's letter:
To: Eastern Maine Camera Club current and prospective Members
From: Jeanne Caron, EMCC President
Welcome back! I hope everyone is having a fun and productive summer. With September fast approaching, it is time to turn our attention to a new year of learning, competition, and camaraderie with the Eastern Maine Camera Club.
With a variety of speakers, the lecture series promises to provide an opportunity to learn and see what others in the field are doing. The competitions allow us to hone our skills in photography and presentation in a supportive and friendly environment and get valuable feedback to improve our work. They challenge us to get outside of our comfort zone with varied subjects and to get out and photograph often.
Remember, September is also club dues time (form here). Please make the many tasks of bookkeeping as smooth as possible for our Club Treasurer Larry Sherwood. Send in your completed registration form and check prior to the first meeting.
Our first meeting will be on September 8th at 6:00 p.m. We will meet at the Bangor Parks and Rec building on Main Street (the old armory, click here for a map) in the "senior" room. This is also where all our regular club meetings are held. We will enjoy a dinner together before our first meeting. The main dish will be catered by Dysart's. Everyone should bring a salad or dessert to share as well as your own preferred beverage. Please RSVP if you plan to come: (click here to send an email, or use the email address in the printed letter)
I look forward to the new 2011-12 season and my new position as President. I will do my best to facilitate a great year! We will have many opportunities for field trips, camaraderie, and the chance and challenge to increase our photography skills. Please see the current calendar on our great new web site.
Come and join us!
Thanks you, Jeanne Caron
