The March meeting is cancelled!
Due to the on-going health emergency, and with confirmed cases in the Austin area and social distancing being recommended, and with much of our membership in the hazardous age group, and the fact that we would have a very sparse turnout anyway for our guest speaker, let’s all stay home and post our pictures on the Facebook site instead.
Our next meeting is Thursday, March 19th at 7:00 pm.
Our program is “Landscape/Nature/Wildlife Photography in the Colorado Rockies” by Kevin Gourley.
Due to the health situation, Brookdale has canceled all outside group meetings for March and April. As always, Carol Serur has been on the job and has found us a meeting place at Price Center for both months. We will have to pay a very reasonable $25/hour.
March and April meeting location:
222 West San Antonio Street
San Marcos, TX 78666
Here is a map showing the location of Price Center
