Meetings are held the first Thursday of each month, from September thru May, except for Apr. 9, at 7pm, at the Luther Manor Conference Room, 4545 N. 92 nd St., Wauwatosa, Wisconsin

Dec. 4 – the Meeting You Don’t Want to Miss

We will celebrate the holiday season and the end of the year with our annual dinner party, in our regular meeting place, the LM Conference Room.

Come at 6 pm for socializing. Bring a dish to share and drinks of your choice.

In addition, we want to view photos of the season. Digital images should be sent to Sandra Weber. Send her up to ten images, and do it now (it’s the editor’s fault that this is getting to you so late).

Exhibits

Pauline Beck is now exhibiting photos by the LM Pharmacy. Her cat is now famous among LM residents, those who are cat lovers. She also has photos of flowers from her garden and a portrait of her mother.

The group display which was in the Welcome Center at LM was taken down last Saturday, and today (Dec. 24) the City Hall exhibition was hung by Richard Yehl, the Sandra Weber, and Pete Koenig. The City Hall photos will be displayed until Dec. 6. About 90 photos are now on display.

The WACCO exhibit in the Blue Building ends with an artists’ reception Dec. 5 between 6 and 8 pm. Photos can be picked at that time, or the following day Dec.6 between 10 and 12 noon.

Dr. Zhu is exhibiting along with two other photographers in the Erickson Gallery in the Marshall Building, 207 E. Buffalo Street, for about one month.

WACCO Activities

WACCO is sponsoring a seminar featuring Adam Jones, a Canon Photographer of Light. It is a bargain, only $8.00. Jones is a nature, travel and wildlife photographer of renown.

The seminar will be held March 21, from 9am to 1 pm, at the Mequon Nature Preserve, 8200 W. County Line Road. Go to the WACCO website to get the entry form.

Club Outings

In what has become a tradition, on Dec. 13 from noon to 4 pm there will be an outing to Old World Wisconsin. This will wind up most likely with a meal at a place to be determined.

The Wisconsin Print Circuit

Many of the prints judged for the Wisconsin Print Circuit the last time were rejected, because they were size 8x10 instead of 8.5 x 11, which made little sense. The rule will most likely be changed for the next batch, which will be judged the 3 rd Thursday in March.

PSA News

We were brought up to date re PSA at the November meeting by Kathy Braun.
