Year End Party
Our club’s year end celebration will be on Wednesday, December 14, at the home of one of our gracious and generous, member, Melissa Anderson. Bring an appetizer, snack or dessert to share and significant others are welcome. Be sure to RSVP by December 5, to assure we will have enough beer, wine, soda and water on hand. Invitations were sent today by email. If you haven’t received your invitation, please let me know by using the contact form. It will be great fun socializing. And last year the food was awesome!

Save the Date for Spring Break
The 2017 Spring Break will be on Saturday, March 25th, 2017, at Dakota County Technical College. This is an event that has been put on by the TCACCC for over thirty years. The day will be packed with a variety of speakers, shooting opportunities, vendors, door prizes and the Interclub Competition results. More details will be coming out after the first of the year.
It’s time to start planning for the 2017 Interclub Competition!
The competition is one of the benefits of being a member of the Twin Cities Area Council of Camera Clubs. As in years past, there will be a club competition where clubs go against clubs. We will choose the best of the salon photos to enter for the club competition. Last year we tied for second place and only a few points behind first place. The individual competition includes mono and color prints, and digital categories of contemporary (creative), nature and realistic. Members can submit to four photos in each of the categories.
The entry deadline will be Sunday, February 5, 5:00 pm. Interclub awards will be made at the 2017 Spring Break event which will be held on Saturday, March 25, 2017. The official rules for 2017 are not out yet, and there will be some minor changes. I’ll let you know when they are available, but in the meantime you can check out last year’s rules. If you’d like to see the winners from previous years check them out here.
Our Town Exhibit
As some of you may know, I was in charge of producing the Hudson Area Calendar from 2011-2015. This was a successful fund-raising project of the garden club, and proceeds were used for beautification projects. I’ve just delivered a selection of images from those years of the calendar for a special Healing Arts exhibit at Hudson Hospital and Clinics. It was a project dear to my heart with more than half of the images being contributed by our members. Be sure to head on over there to see some amazing work.
