Mid-Michigan Photography Club May 2021 Updates

June MMPC Meeting – Cooley Gardens/Scott Sunken Gardens

An in-person outdoor meeting of the Mid-Michigan Photography Club is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday June 2, 2021. We will try to meet outdoors. We will meet at Cooley Gardens and the Scott Sunken Gardens, located on Main Street near the foot of Capitol Ave. in Lansing. We will feature a demonstration of the panoramic technique for the June MMPC photo challenge.

This is Michigan. In the event of inclement weather, an alternate online event will be held and an announcement will be sent to the MMPC email list and will posted on the MMPC web site at http://mmphotoclub.com. Plans for upcoming MMPC meetings are on the MMPC website calendar page at http://mmphotoclub.com/calendar/.

MMPC has been informed that First Presbyterian Church plans to reevaluate use of the church when the current Health Order is changed. The MMPC Board has decided to hold outdoor and virtual meetings because of the restriction on group activities under current health orders, the uncertainty of plans for activities at First Presbyterian Church, and our concern to prevent transmission of the coronavirus and to protect the safety of MMPC members.

Save The Dates – Upcoming Outdoor MMPC Meetings

The Mid-Michigan Photography Club is planning to hold outdoor meetings as long as the weather holds. Plans include:

  • Wednesday August 4, 2021 – Grand Ledge – Island Park
  • Wednesday September 1, 2021 – Downtown Lansing – Rotary Park

There is no MMPC meeting planned in July, 2021.
