FIELD TRIP TO ELIZABETH PARK

FIELD TRIP TO ELIZABETH PARK

WHEN:  Monday June 10, 2019
TIME:  10:00 – 12:00
WHERE: Elizabeth Park, 1561 Asylum Avenue, West Hartford

An informal morning field trip is scheduled to shoot the beautiful roses in Elizabeth Park.  This park, in the heart of West Hartford, is filled with opportunities to find subjects for your photos – such as irises, roses, birds swimming in the pond, a stone bridge over a small stream and much, much more. 
So join us for a morning of shooting and social time with your photography friends.  We will meet near the conservatory at 10:00 and photograph for about 2 hours (or until we are finished).  Lunch is on your own.  There are many options in the area or you can bring your own and stay in the park to eat. 

Upon getting home, you can rest up and come out again for our year-end banquet at Bellini’s in North Haven.  If you haven’t signed up for the dinner, please contact Jan Doyle, President (jmdteach@comcast.net). 

To sign up for this trip, please contact Ann Yost (ayost4@aol.com).  You must be a member of the New Haven Camera Club to go on this trip. 
 


Our New Meeting Location

It's official! Our new meeting venue for the year 2019-2020 will be at the 

Unitarian Society of New Haven
700 Hartford Turnpike 
Hamden, CT 06517

​The meetings will be held, as usual, on the second and fourth Mondays of the month. We will ask that everyone arrive promptly by 6:45 pm (or 6:30 even better) because the front door locks automatically. Anyone arriving late would have to phone a member to come open the door! The meetings will be held in the 'Children's Chapel', to the right and at the end of the hall. Hope to see you all in September at our new location! 
 
Please contact me with any questions: denisesaldana@hotmail.com

Second  Notice


Call for volunteers from your incoming president!


NHCC needs a new Judges Coordinator for next year. As you might know, our own Paul Peterson has done this job for years, as well as the job of running our competitions. We need someone to relieve Paul next year. Paul will gladly share his expertise with you and get you started. Your club needs someone (or somebodies) to step forward and help out! Thank you!
