NEW YORK BOTANICAL field trip


NEW HAVEN CAMERA CLUB TRIP 
TO NEW YORK BOTANICAL GARDEN GARDEN PAINTINGS/WATERLILLIES 
AND WAVE HILL PUBLIC GARDEN and CULTURAL CENTER 
JULY 28, 2012
Join New Haven Camera Club for a day of photographing two New York gardens. The first location is The New York Botanical Gardens, Bronx New York, where a special gathering of impressionist painter Claude Monet's paintings will be on exhibit. Monet's original palette, and digital versions of his sketchbooks will also be on display. Waterlilies which were Monet's inspiration, pay tribute him in the Conservatory Glasshouse and outdoor courtyards.
The second location will be nearby Wave Hill New York Public Garden overlooking the Hudson River. There are 28 acres to explore including a garden pool environment for resident fish, frogs, and dragonflies.

NHCC members who will be attending NECCC


Attention NHCC members who will be attending NECCC

It has been a tradition that we NHCC members who are up at Amherst for the conference all go to dinner together on Sat. eve. at Bertucci's, which is very close to campus. We're hoping to keep that tradition alive. We usually try to get there by 5 or 5:15PM, which gives us time to eat, drink and be merry but still get back to campus for Saturday Evening's program.

Just so we can have a preliminary head count, if you think you'll be joining us for dinner would you please email your name to me at beadnik2@gmail.com. It might be helpful to have your room # if you are staying on campus. We'll try to touch base with folks once we're up at Amherst to finalize a place to meet for those who want to carpool over to the restaurant, and to give a final time to meet at the restaurant for those who want to go on their own.

Looking forward to a great conference!
