Well it is the end of a year for the Eastern Maine Camera Club. We start up again with regular meetings in September. I am taking over as president for the coming year so I will be attempting to expand our use of social media for communications. This will include more updates to this blog, expanding the facebook group members, and trying to get a better handle on our email list and how it is used by the members.
Over the summer we have one major project which is the Photo Contest for the Bangor State Fair. We run this contest for the Bangor Fair. Things are pretty well ready, we have posted the rules and regulations, we have hired judges, and we have the work crews ready to accept, judge, display, handle awards, and return the images that will be part of the contest. We are expecting about 800 entries this year so it is a lot of work but very rewarding as it furthers our interest in helping others with their photography.
