St. Anthony branch of the Hennepin County Library

All UMRA members with an interest in photography are welcome to attend the meeting of the UMRA Photo Club on Tuesday, October 10. We will be meeting at the Hennepin County St. Anthony branch library starting at 12:30 p.m.  

“Light” is the theme for October.

What is a meeting of the Photo Club like? We share and discuss pictures, ask questions and laugh a lot. Come just to see what a meeting is like. The meeting will start with members sharing their theme pictures and then move on to other pictures of their own choice.  

We welcome photographers of all abilities. Most of us are struggling amateurs, and we learn from sharing and talking about our pictures.

The library is located in the small shopping center at the intersection of New Brighton and St. Anthony Boulevards. There is ample free parking.  

If you are interested, come at 11:30 a.m. for lunch together at the Great Dragon Buffet, across the parking lot from the library. Be sure to ask for the senior discount when you pay.

For more information, email Sheri Goldsmith May or Craig Swan.
