  • IMPORTANT CLUB MEETING SCHEDULE CHANGE
    Due to church schedule needs the Creative Camera club cannot meet on the third Thursday of June (6/16) this month.  We are going to meet on the fourth Thursday (6/23) instead.

    Additionally we are going to swap the content of the June and July meetings since Mary Rezny is unavilable to critique the Natural Abstract competition topic on 6/23.  The June and July meetings will be held as follows:
    • June 23 - Tom Myers will present the 56th North Central Insect Photographic Salon
    • July 21 - Natural Abstract Competition
    Because of the schedule change the new deadline for submission for the Natural Abstract competition will be midnight Sunday 7/17.
