Welcome to the first newsletter of another year filled with photography. Once again this year, we look forward to many
opportunities to share our visions and our knowledge, to learn and to grow, and, most of all, to keep taking pictures.
As we begin another Photo Pictorialist year, though, we will miss the many contributions from Jerry Harders, who
passed away on June 3.

The topic is What I Did Last Summer
Each member may bring as many digital or print
