Camera Club: Reaping Benefits Already
Sunday night was the annual dinner banquet for the camera club I joined.
This is where they give out awards for outstanding photography
and recognize the officers and other services provided by its members.
They present a slideshow of all the blue ribbon winners
and everyone has a good time.
They also have tons of prizes that they raffle.
I bought $20.00 worth of raffle tickets
and I am excited to say that I won two prizes from the raffle drawing.
The first prize is this camera bag which is slightly bigger than the one I already owned.
Which was generously donated by this business:
I was so excited to win something.
I also won this wonderful prize:
This is what it looked like when the banquet was ending.
Some people had already left and others were mingling.
I'd say there were about 75 to 100 people in attendance.
It was a really good time.
And here I am with my husband at the end of the night.
The photo above was taken by my friend Gayla, who joined the club with me.
Here is a picture of Gayla and her husband
We all had a lot of fun.
Tomorrow night is our field trip to Ethel M. Chocolate Factory.
They have a Christmas Light Display in their garden that is supposed to be really amazing.
I hope I am able to get some good photos for Friday's theme of Christmas Season.
One of the camera club members will be giving a brief lesson on how to take
photos at night before we go shooting haphazardly.
Next year will offer many photographic opportunities by being involved in this club.
I look forward to sharing my journey with all of you.
Thank you for visiting me.
I really do appreciate it.
