OUR NEXT MEETING

All meetings are free and open to the public

The next meeting is Tuesday, October 7th at 7:00 PM in Multi-Use Room 3 at the Fort Collins Senior Center.

OK, for all of you who have smart phones, you have used those phones to take photos, correct? Now that you have a "phone-full" of photos, what can you do with those photos? And, perhaps as important, what should you do and not do with those photos?

Plan to attend the October meeting to find out, because the topic is "Your Smart Phone and Photography."
