Dear Members,

     I hope this letter finds you and your family well and healthy.  I think we can all agree that this has been quite an unusual time in all our lives.

     Our club has been fortunate to have had the leadership and energy of our president, Ed, and the support of a dedicated and hard-working board.  Although we couldn’t hold our face-to face meetings or organize field trips, Tidelands Photography Club has been able to continue to provide webinars and zoom presentations from our local and regional favorites like Jamie Konarski Davidson, Kate Silvia, and Dave Kelly. In addition, going remote enabled us to reach out beyond our region to find national presenters such as Joe Reardon, Charles Needle, Lisa Langell, and Steve Gettle. We were also able to continue to offer Photoshop and Lightroom workshops remotely as well as hold our monthly contests. A new addition to keep us stimulated have been the regular Post Processing Challenges.

      Although we had some unexpected expenses for expanded Zoom capability and larger DropBox storage, we were able to pay presenters and meet our regular annual expenses as a non-profit organization and still have some funds left over that might have been spent on field trips, workshop refreshments, and some office expenses. That being the case, the board voted to reduce the annual dues for 2021 from $30 to $25 for an individual membership and $40 for a family membership.

      Hopefully, we’ll be able to meet in person soon, but, until we can, we will continue to provide challenging programs, presentations, classes, and projects.

      Please send your 2021 dues to:

                              Linda Dittrich

                              1324 Royal Devon Drive

 Thank you,
