The Laurel Highlands Photography Club met April 16 at St. Paul's Presbyterian Church. The first item of business that was addressed was where to hold the meetings. It was decided to continue to meet at St. Paul's Presbyterian for the May and June meetings. The club is grateful to St. Paul's for the use of the facility.
Discussion was held about a club outing to the Schwab Estate. Linda Seanor is checking on the best time to go. They would like to go when the fountains are in operation and that appears to be on a Sunday. Further details will be discussed at the May meeting.
Art in the Park will be held in Trinity Park on July 25. Entries for the Town Planner calendar will be accepted at the May meeting and will be judged by the end of May. Members are to get their entries prepared and follow the guidelines of the annual photography contest. Winners will be revealed at Art in the Park and members who would like their work to be shown at Art in the Park should let Jodi Brougher know as soon as possible.
The club is in the process of adopting by-laws. A committee has been formed and will continue to work on this project. Members of the committee are reminded to meet at 5:30 p.m. May 21. When a set of by-laws are created, they will be presented to the club to be adopted.
The Johnstown Camera Club's annual photography contest will be held May 6-19 at the Galleria Mall. Entries were accepted Sunday at the Galleria. All members of the Laurel Highlands Photography Club are encouraged to support their friends in Johnstown and enter their contest.
The club voted to continue to meet in July and August but those meeting dates will be field trips and photo opportunities. The July meeting will be held at Kooser State Park. More information will be presented at the May meeting.
Ron Bruner did the program on Kaleidoscope Effect and it was outstanding. The club is grateful to Bruner for his work and presentation. Members are encouraged to get their entries ready for Somerset Magazine and the theme is Summer Treats. The theme for the Crazy Alice display is Flowers.
