Presentation of Poster to Palm Beach Zoo

The Palm Beach Zoo has re-opened! Yesterday morning Jeff and I dropped off the poster from our field trip in January. *Photo taken by Dori

We walked around the zoo afterwards and noticed that there have been some nice changes.

We are still not cleared to meet at the library, but will keep you posted. ~ Sandy

 

 

A message from our Club President

Hello Everyone!

I hope you are all doing well as this pandemic runs its course. As I’m sure you are all aware, the state is beginning to slowly ease quarantine restrictions as long as we are all practicing social distancing guidelines. What does this mean for members of the Lighthouse Camera Club? Well, we are allowed to walk on the beach again to take those beautiful sunrise photos and many state parks and wildlife areas are beginning to open so we can get out if we feel comfortable to do so (and don’t forget to send Jeff some images) My husband and I went out in the boat this past weekend (all by ourselves) and between the sunshine, perfect temperature, and the wind in our hair- it felt like heaven!
We will continue to monitor openings, but as we mentioned last month, we will definitely not be having a meeting in May. It is highly unlikely we will meet in June, but we will see where we are at the end of the month and let you know about July. The safety of each and every one of you is of the upmost importance- we will not risk your health by meeting before it is safe to do so.
I hope you all have taken the time to watch some tutorials and practiced editing older images. If you follow our Facebook page, you would see that Steve and Bill sure have and have been sharing pretty regularly. Bill Prim and Louis Mark have also been sharing lots of great images!
I wish I had a crystal ball and could tell you when this will behind us, but unfortunately we are reading the websites just like you and waiting for the governor to give us the all clear.
We really do miss you and can’t wait until we can all meet again!
Stay safe!
Sandra
