We had a festive evening, enjoying the company of 78 members and visitors in attendance for a Lasagna dinner, listening to wonderful Christmas Carols on the piano by the talented Lisa Craft.
Rob Sheppard provided the program “Guaranteed Better Digital Photography,” which was outstanding for the novice through the advance photographer. After Rob’s presentation, he critiqued each Salon entry and then Sue Craft presented him with a Certificate of Appreciation.
Lyle Trusty arranged a Salon Show, where Master Photographers displayed a framed sample of their best work. All members were able to vote on their favorite photograph and Rob Sheppard announced the winner. Congratulations to Lyle Trusty for Members Choice Award.

We would like to thank Tylene Trout and Pat Ware who gave so generously of their time in the planning of the Christmas party. We would also like to thank all others who contributed to the night’s festivities. We had 78 people attend and approx 15 people made this event happen for everyone. Sometimes, we forget to say thank you, so… “to all those that made the evening a success—Thank you”
A special “thank you” to the Jung family for raffle baskets, pottery gifts, and the various other gifts they donated for the Christmas party. George is the “potter” in the family. The gifts were nice and everyone enjoyed them. Again…thank you. The Jung family has been taking care of the raffles for over a year and doing an excellent job!
