WAPC Christmas Party - December 12, 2016 -   RSPV Please

Our WAPC Christmas Party is coming up the second Monday of December, the 12th, at 5 PM. This great event will be catered once again by the gang at Apple Market. The cost will be $10 for members. We will also do gift collection for the residents at The Arc Gateway. Details will follow, but basically we ask everyone to buy a gift.  Consider something practical link clothes, etc.  Candles are not a good idea.  Box, wrap and bring to the Christmas Party. Tag the gift with the size, sex and/or age the gift is for.  I will ensure they are delivered to Arc the next day. 

Please email Dick Weaver regarding your attendance at the party.  The cost is $10 per person..  If you have any questions at this point, please email Dick Weaver.

Rumors are that Norm Haines will be singing I'm Dreaming of a Nikon D5.  Rob Kepko will be giving away $5,000 worth of gear and we will announce the new officers and perhaps the clubs new logo.  

We always have a great time so please remember to email whether you are coming or not so we can have a precise count for Apple Market.  We certainly don't want too many leftovers.

See you there.

InWeekly Article - A POP of Culture, August 18-25, 2016

Jennifer Leigh wrote an incredible article about the Power of Photography® Show that was published in InWeekly Arts & Entertainment section for the week of August 18-25, 2016.  This was published before the show so I am slow getting it on our site.  But it was well done and we need to thank Jennifer and InWeekly for the coverage.

Her article was titled A POP of Culture.  You can Download & Read it.  She did a great job talking about the POP show and I know many who attended the show mentioned reading the article.

InWeekly is an amazing paper.  Pick up a copy, download it in PDF format, or you can read it on-line at www.inweekly.net . They do a great job covering numerous topics about local events and entertainment.  

Thank you to Jennifer and InWeekly for covering our POP Show 2016.
