We are coming to the end of summer. The summer photo walks were well attended and everyone seemed to have fun. We also enjoyed our Annual Summer Picnic at Wayne Palmer's house on August 1st. And, I've seen a lot of fun vacation photos posted to our Facebook page from members traveling all around the world this summer.
Scavenger Hunt photos are due to Kevin by Sept 7. His email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. Please send all photos to him with the name of the topic and your name in the file title.The topics are listed below:

The rules for the upcoming Animal Themed Members' Only Show are now on our website. Registration will be open on our website from September 1-25. Anyone who is not a current member but would like to enter this show, they will just need to pay their dues along with the entry fee for each photo being submitted and this is discussed in more details in the rules. Photos may be dropped off on Sept. 27 from 1-3 pm or on Sept. 28 from 5-6 pm before our meeting begins that night. The photos will be judged by a panel of three member judges and cash prizes will be awarded to the winning photos. The public will also get a chance to vote for their favorites during the show opening on October 2nd.
We hope to see everyone back in the Taber Museum for our September 28th meeting at 6 pm. We will be treated to a slideshow from our summer scavenger hunt photos and will also be hanging our Animal Themed Show that will open on Friday, October 2. We will also be taking sign-ups from members to help with the Show opening night from setting up for the show, providing food and wine for the show, helping out during the show, and cleaning-up after the show.
