HERE'S WHAT'S HAPPENING IN THE PCSCHH
PHOTO CONTEST FOR BEAUFORT
COUNTY 2016 LAND PRESERVATION CALENDAR is now accepting
entries through September 8, 2015. The theme is "Ripple
Effects: Wetlands and Waterways, Creeks and Critters." In
recent years, several members have seen their entries selected
for the calendar, and just looking back on the quality of our
theme-related photos recently exhibited at Lemon Island, we
should already have a head start for participating in this
contest. The main requirement is that the photos must have
been taken in Beaufort County. For more information and
the application form, go to the Beaufort County
website and follow the
applicable links. Also, be alert for announcements on
field trips to some of the more promising sites.
MEETINGS: With the summer
recess upon us, our next membership meeting won't be until
Tuesday, September 8, 7:00pm, at Hidden Cypress. The
competition theme will be "Portraits" (speaker TBA). Participants are reminded
of the mandatory requirement to submit their image files in
for complete requirements.
The fall schedule of studio
classes will be published in
late August. Of course, anyone is encouraged to suggest a
new class and/or volunteer to teach it. Several current
instructors have found the best way to become more familiar with
a subject is to teach it. Think about it, and contact
for more information or to volunteer.
INTERESTED IN MEMBERSHIP?
The cost is $20 for the first member and $10 for the second
member of the same household.
Sun City resident who is considering membership in PCSCHH is
invited to learn more about the club; visit the studio in the Yemassee Craft Center or come as a guest to the September 8th
meeting, then join at the Club Fair in October and be paid up
