This month's meeting will be on June 21st at 7 PM. It will be in the Deramus building. Brings images to share and equipment to trade or sell.

 Be sure to come in to the park through Gregory or the other side of the mall drive on Meyer. Park in the parking lot on the south side of the Deramus building (the rhino lot), and go into the Deramus building through the office doors.  There is a show at Starlight that evening, and they will need the north parking lot.

 Seven members enjoyed a nice day at the Tallgrass Prairie on May 22nd.

 Bring your wants and your unwanted equipment for the "Buy- Sell-Trade" session. We will try to have this at every meeting.

 Send your images for the WEB site to Jim Rendina. Images submitted should be 640 X 480 in size. From there Jim can resize them to fit on the web page. New images are needed on a regular basis.

 Jim also needs prints, 5 X 7 or 7 X 9 for the KIOSK in the IMAX Theater Lobby. Photos of the Summer Reptile Exhibit are especially needed.

 The KC Digital Camera Club meeting will be on Monday, June 29th at 7 PM at the Waldo Library.
