New Newsletter

February 2007

The officers of The Warren Photographic Society have decided to put out a monthly newsletter. In years past there have been several newsletters, the last by John Fillian. This newsletter lives and dies by the input you as club members give. I will attempt to get it out for the first meeting of each month. I will email it to the people with email (Word format) and also copies will be at all meetings. If you have anything you would like to add please email it to me at XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX or you can send it to my house at XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX. I will make every attempt to include your submissions on a timely basis. Remember, all submissions are susceptible to editing due to the length of the newsletter.

Good Luck Walt

March 2007

Walt Unks is off to Georgia to walk The Appalachian Trail. It is a continuous marked footpath that goes from Springer Mountain in Georgia to Mt. Katahdin in Maine, a distance of about 2160 miles. If all goes well we should see him again in June or July.

Photography by Tom Jones
Sunday, 2 p.m.

    Tom Jones, an accomplished photographer from Peninsula, Ohio, will help us kick off this year's photo exhibit with two presentations. His multiple projector slide programs are accompanied with music. You won't want to miss them!
    The protection of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in Alaska has been a topic of concern in recent years. Tom spent two summers hiking and rafting in that area. He'll share his experiences through a unique presentation--"ANWR: A Photographer's Diary" (55 minutes).  After an intermission, he'll conclude with a more local subject: "Deer Trails: Winter Wildlife of the Cuyahoga Valley" (28 minutes). Held at Fellows Riverside Gardens.

March 3 - April 8
Nature Photography Exhibit
Weller Gallery
    Don't miss this annual exhibit that highlights the talents of amateur photographers. Nine categories fill the gallery for your viewing pleasure.

March 18
An Afternoon With Red Tail
Sunday, 2 p.m.

    Learn about the Native American way of life from Red Tail, Stephen Rickard, an adopted member of the Sioux, the Shoshone, the Flathead, and the Blackfeet Tribes. He'll share slides of traditional life, including food preparation and the medicinal uses of plants that are still being used today by the Intermountain Tribes of Montana.

You'll also hear the Shoshone story of the Courting Flute and explore the importance of music in the everyday life of native tribes. Meet at Ford Nature Center.

The WPS is Looking for Ideas

We need Your ideas for spring and summer field trips. If you have one or two or ten please let Debbie Bice know at XXXXXXX.

Resource Library


We are attempting to get a resource library started for the club. If you have any materials that you wouldn't mind letting another club member borrow for a two week period of time, I will send out a completed list to all members so that they can see what is available in the resource library.


How this would work: Example: I would contact Ken Platt about a book he has on the list. He would bring it to the next club meeting. I would then fill out a ticket (I will be giving these to all members the next club meeting) and give it to Ken so he knows who borrowed the book. I would then bring it back to him the next club meeting or an agreed "Return date."
