It was a festive evening, with the red, white, & green holiday decorations, a Salon Show, the scent of turkey and stuffing in the air, the sweet sound of Christmas Carols coming from the piano, and a slide show of past field trips. Good times were had by all 45 members in attendance.
Marilyn Dalrymple, who took on the chairperson position for the potluck, did an awesome job!
Marilyn is new to the LPA, and jumped right in and gave so generously of her time. We had quite the feast.
Lyle Trusty arranged a Salon Show, where Master Photographers displayed a framed sample of their best work. After hearing Lyle remind us of what makes a GREAT photograph… impact, technical quality, and presentation, we all got to vote on our favorite photograph. Congratulations to Tylene Trout for winning the Members Choice Award for her photograph “Serengeti Silhouette, Kenya”. .
Dean Webb and Sue Craft provided narration for a digital presentation of past LPA field trips, dating back to 1968. Dean has a great memory, and had lots of “funnies” to share.
Our piano player for the evening was Lisa Craft, who after having so much fun this evening, decided she wants to become an LPA member.
Ending the evening was your usual 50/50 drawing, and Darlene Sprunger won $54.50!
We had a lot of beautiful “Mystery Gift Baskets” show up, which were raffled of. Ends up… they were all donated by the Jung family (Kathy, Sky, Shane, and George). For those of you who won a gift basket, the ceramic pieces included were hand made by George. Thank you!!
