----------- UPCOMING EVENTS -----------


Next Meeting:-December 13, 2018 at 7:00 PM




1. PROGRAM: " Tips for Photographing Couples and Groups" by Fran Wehner. Fran will use the photos taken of 57 couples and groups at the 2018 AFA Gala to show what not to do and what to do better. She'll explain posing, lighting, common mistakes, image orientation, colors, angles, things to avoid, and how to solve problems with images. With the holidays coming, you'll likely be asked to take pictures of family and friends. Come to the meeting and learn how to do it better. Fran is a very experienced professional portrait photographer and loves to share her techniques. So come enjoy the annual pot luck Dinner and learn at the same time.

2. POT LUCK DINNER: We'll share another great annual dinner. Many members have volunteered to bring yummy food.


VEGETABLES: Ray Dryz, Bill Shreve, Mandy Womack, Santos Rubio, Pamela Alexander, Linda Ratliff, Jimmy Monk
SALAD: Kathy Gray, Tori Wallker, Rachel Manley, Linda Ratliff, Anita Page
DESSERT: Sue Large, Carol Pate, Fran Lohr, Dave McGowen, Rex Walker, Mandy Womack, Julia Temple, Corinna Bontly, Debbie Duggar

3. GIFT EXCHANGE- There will be a "Dirty Santa" gift exchange. If you wish to participate, bring a wrapped gift, either new or used. Even white elephant items from your attic can be exchanged and often become the most fun and sought after exchange items. If you buy something, don't spend more than $10 or so.


4. PHOTO CHALLENGE: - There will NOT be a photo challenge at the December meeting.

The winner of the last Photo Challenge was Dave McGowen with his photo of an Alaskan bear.

-----------DUES-----------


You do not have to pay dues or have a membership card to attend regular monthly meetings. Everyone is welcome. Meetings are free and open to the public without cost or obligation.

However, many great benefits are available to those who pay dues. Membership cards will be issued to dues-paid members and are required to: borrow library items, borrow equipment, attend free special workshops, attend free field trips, display in the WWPS tent at the AFA Festival, use our matting/framing room and free supplies, etc.

Dues are due in January of each year- Individual-$10, family-$15, plus we ask that you volunteer at least 10 hours each year to help with our club events. Your volunteering earns funding for our club, and that's how we are able to keep dues so low!

MARILYN RUMSEY
CHERIE HUNT
NANCY ALEXANDER


Returning items: Do not wait until the next meeting to return items. Use our 24-hour drop box, located in the mail slot in the garage door at 323 NW 35th st., one block north of Comanche County Hospital on 35th st.



----------- OTHER INFORMATION -----------

Volunteering is the price we all pay to enjoy the benefits of WWPS, so please pitch in and help

We need YOU to help make presentations to clubs, civic groups, schools, churches, etc. You can use our pre-prepared PowerPoint presentation "Tips for Taking Great Photos". It's really simple to do.

If you make a presentation, display your photographs anywhere, teach a class to one or more people, or anything similar, let us know because our club gets funding for presentations done by our members. Contact a WWPS officer for more info.
