Australia Trip 2

Thank you to Mac Rodgers for creating this slideshow of the September  Mini-Contest.  

TWPC Members!

It is the 2021 Annual Contest time of the year!! The entries are in, and it looks like we have some great work in every category!

Our Annual Contest Committee is behind the scenes categorizing the photos, labeling and preparing the images to be seen virtually by the judges. This is no small task, and we thank everyone involved especially Ellen Taylor and Randi Munsey, our Annual Contest Chair and Co-Chair!

Also, watch for information online for you to vote for the “Members’ Choice”!

I hear the drum roll as we approach October 11, 7pm for our Zoom meeting when the judges share the results and winners are announced in each category! You don’t want to miss this!

Then, on November 8, from 5:30-9:00, we get to meet face-to-face at the Glade Gallery for the Exhibition and Refreshments and view the winning photographs! We will have plenty of room to spread out to follow Covid Protocol and keep everyone safe. Make sure to invite your family and friends for a fabulous evening!

See you there and good luck to all who entered!

Joan, Tom and your Leadership Team
