President's Message

Bob Coffey

This promises to be a year of change for The Delaware Photographic Society. After many years of conducting our meetings at the Academy of Medicine and one year at the A. I. DuPont Middle School, plus Instruction Night sessions at Concord Library, we have found a new home, The First Unitarian Church. We have signed an agreement for this coming year as a trial period, and, if all goes as expected, we should be able to extend our contract in the future. It provides a very nice meeting room, plenty of parking space, handicap accessibility, a full kitchen as well as a kitchenette, and equipment storage all in a well lighted, safe location.

For the first time we will be able to conduct all of our Club activities in one facility.
In competitions, there will be an additional award for the most innovative slide and a new "Creative Abstract" print category where anything goes.

We will celebrate our Club's 70th birthday at the pot luck supper and will end the year with a pizza party or some other appealing departure from our formal annual awards banquet. Karl Leck has scheduled an informative array of programs for Instruction Night and Bill Lindsey has lined up some outstanding presentations for Speaker Night. Ray Magnani will shepherd the Mentor Program for new members. Finally, Valentina Donor and Marj Whitmore have lined up some great field trips and tours.
