March Mountain Shadows Display: Photo Club has the display cases at Mountain

display. Different this year will be that we are going to solicit photos by theme:
Smartphone photos, basic Aim and Shoot camera photos, and all-the-bells-and whistles
camera photos. Also, Adrian will be seeking help at 9 AM on March 1st
(Thursday) for the actual display. There will be a sign up on line.

Theme Competition: This month's theme was Winter. The winners were Marina
Jurasek and Larry Jones. Next month's theme is Still Life.
