Meetings are held the first Thursday of each month, from September thru May, except for Jan. 8, Mar. 19, and
Apr. 9, at 7pm, in the Luther Manor Conference Room, 4545 N. 92nd St., Wauwatosa, Wisconsin
Happy (and Healthy) New Year!
Because the first Thursday of January is New Years
Day, our next meeting will be January 8. We are
starting off the year with a slideshow of John and
Dixie Lowin photographs taken in Africa.
Some of the old timers in the club have seen these
pictures, and will want to see them again. For the
new members of the club seeing them for the first
time will be a real treat, not to be missed.
As time allows, there will be a group discussion
afterwards about improving vacation and travel
photography.
Exhibits
In January our club will mount a group show of
photographs selected from the large show which
was exhibited in the Milwaukee City Hall.

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. At only $8.00 this is a bargain.
Club Outings and Photo Opportunities
On January 31 there will be an outing to Lake
Geneva to take in the United States National Snow
Sculpting Competition. The winning sculptures will
be announced at 3pm in the Riviera Ballroom just
across the street from where the carvings will be.
From 11am to 4pm the Ballroom will have music, a
magic show, and light refreshments.
Pauline Beck will have more details about this by
mid-month, and about carpooling arrangements.
Let Pauline know if you are interested in going.
Here are some other photo opportunities.

There were about ninety photos in that show,
