Charter Member Irene Dowdy Honored for Years of Service
The Club honored one of its Charter members, Irene Dowdy, at the October meeting. Irene has been very active in the club throughout its history, including continuous service in various positions on the Board of Directors. She was feted with a wonderful slide show of photos taken over the years with various members and showing her in action with her ever-present camera. The Board voted to make her a Lifetime Honorary Member of the club and presented her with a digital photo frame. We wish Irene all the best in her new home near family in S.C.
September Club Competition Judged
The intra-club competition theme for September was "Colorful" and the entries were very colorful. As usual, a member of the Photographic Society of America (PSA) judged the competition, which is has two divisions based on experience and previous success in PSA competitions. In Division A -- the more experienced group -- First place was awarded to Marsha Kerchner for her entry "Native American." Steve Wingfield's "Harvesting Summer Pollen" was awarded second place and Leslie Nolan's "Male Painted Bunting" placed third. In Division B, Brian LaLone's "Deco Fish Mirrored" was awarded first place and Kathy Ritter placed second with her entry "Happy Space." All of the entries can be seen in the slide show just below
