!!! Volunteers Needed !!!

The GLPA Photo Course will change this year and only be held on one day - Saturday November 4th. We will still need helpers for that day from 1 - 3 pm for the afternoon session for the hands-on camera review. We will need Nikon, Canon, mirrorless and point-and-shoot users to help familiarize attendees with their cameras. This is a great opportunity to promote our club. If you can help, please sign up at the club on the sheet across from the treasurer's desk or e-mail me at the address below. When you sign up or e-mail, please let me know the type of camera you use. Teaching is the best way to learn, so please join us and help the attendees learn to use their cameras. Your help is needed and greatly appreciated.
