Next meeting- 09 February 2023

1. PROGRAM: “A Guided Tour of Ireland and Scotland” by Kathy Gray. 

If you haven’t been to Ireland or Scotland and don’t plan a trip there, this program is for you. World traveler Kathy Gray will take us on a photographic  journey through the wonders of these beautiful countries .  Travel from Ireland’s Ancient East through the hidden heartlands towards the Ring of Kerry and Skellig Ring before heading up the “Wild Atlantic Way” seeing the Kilkee Cliffs and Cliffs of Mohr. Ride over mountain passes and through national parks to the Sea Stacks of Downpatrick Head. Meander through serene isolated boglands with wide open landscapes before heading off to explore the basalt columns of Giants Causeway.  Board a ferry and head to  Scotland to discover castles, distilleries, and the Scottish highlands. Ride the tightly twisted narrow “goat path” roads on the Isle of Skye before heading through the “tree tunnels” of the Galloway forest.  View the vastness of Scotland’s beautifully rolling grass covered hills and valleys before taking the ferry back to Ireland to explore Trim Castle where “Braveheart” was filmed.   This is not somebody’s vacation slide show, but an expertly narrated guided tour.  Kathy is a great guide as she researches thoroughly and tells us the back story, history, and interesting facts about the things we see on the tour.  You’ll feel like you have actually been there after you visit these distant lands from the comfort of your home.  Don’t miss this program.

2. SHOW AND TELL. There will be a photo Show and Tell at this meeting. If you would like to share one or two photos, just send them to: WichitaWildlight@gmail.com no later than two days before the meeting. Send your photos as .jpg, if possible.

3. ANNOUNCEMENT:  Attending WWPS meetings helps with our funding, since we actually earn funding points for your attendance.  You’ll learn and can contribute your knowledge and experience, and you’ll have a nice time.  Besides, we enjoy seeing you!  Please put the meetings on your calendar.

4. DUES:  We will resume dues for 2023 in January. With the huge funding cuts we suffered this year, your support is more important than ever. Just pay the Treasurer at the meeting.  SUGGESTION: show up a little early to pay dues before the meeting starts.  Avoid waiting in line. 

Dues are: Individual-$10, family-$15, plus we ask that you volunteer at least 10 hours each year to help with our club events. Your volunteering earns funding for our club, and that’s how we are able to keep dues so low!

You will receive a new membership card. Many great benefits are available to those who pay dues. Membership cards will be issued to dues-paid members and are required to: borrow library items or equipment, attend free special workshops, attend free field trips, display in the WWPS tent at the AFA Festival, use our matting/framing room and free supplies, etc.

Note: You do not have to pay dues or have a membership card to attend regular monthly meetings. Everyone is welcome. Meetings are free and open to the public without cost or obligation.  But your dues help WWPS survive.
