----------- UPCOMING EVENTS -----------

August 13, 2020, 7:00 PM - MONTHLY MEETING (via Zoom)
This will be a regular meeting, but conducted online using Zoom. After some announcements and opportunity for comments by members, there will be a program.

PROGRAM: "A Photo Tour of China" by John Powers (via Zoom from California). When we think of China, we think of the Great Wall and Tienanmen Square. And those are places you should certainly visit. But there is another side of China that must be seen to be believed. Go with John on his recent travels through central China as he shares some photos and insights into a culture that dates back a thousand years or more. John will explain how he got certain images and what it takes to catch a glorious sunset or sunrise shot in an exotic place... besides a lot of luck! So, sit back and enjoy the ride as John Powers takes you almost 8,000 miles away and back again! John Powers is a WWPS member and a gifted photographer who used to live in Lawton, OK, but now lives in California and travels the world photographing the culture and scenery. He has travelled extensively through Asia. His most recent book is on Vietnam’s people and landscapes, and is in the WWPS library. Clem Wehner said, “John is an exceptional cultural photographer who has a unique ability to image people and scenery of far-away places like no other photographer I’ve ever known”. Don’t miss this program.

If not already on our mailing list and you want an invitation, send email to: WichitaWildlight@gmail.com


PHOTO SHOW AND TELL: There will be a photo Show and Tell at this zoom meeting. If you would like to share one or two photos you took with us, just send them to: WichitaWildlight@gmail.com no later than August 10th. Send your photos as .jpg, if possible.

--------SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENTS -----------



-----------DUES ARE DUE IN JANUARY-----------


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.

However, 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, borrow 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.

Dues are due in January of each year- 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!



----------- LIBRARY -----------


The following people have library items overdue:

None, thank you!

Returning items: Do not wait until the next meeting to return items. Use our 24-hour drop box, located in the mail slot in the garage door at 323 NW 35th st., one block north of Comanche County Hospital on 35th st.



----------- OTHER INFORMATION -----------

Volunteering is the price we all pay to enjoy the benefits of WWPS, so please pitch in and help

We need YOU to help make presentations to clubs, civic groups, schools, churches, etc. You can use our pre-prepared PowerPoint presentation "Tips for Taking Great Photos". It's really simple to do.

If you make a presentation, display your photographs anywhere, teach a class to one or more people, or anything similar, let us know because our club gets funding for presentations done by our members. Contact a WWPS officer for more info.
