March Virtual Meeting

An online meeting of the Mid-Michigan Photography Club is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday March 3, 2021.  Photographer Doug Milligan will be the guest speaker. Doug’s work is online at:

He works in many photographic genres, with paid work for modeling and senior portraits. Doug will bring images to share and he will be prepared for discussion. MMPC will send the online meeting information by email the Monday before the event. The online meeting information will also be posted on the MMPC Facebook Group.

MMPC has been informed that First Presbyterian Church plans to reevaluate use of the church when the current Executive Order is changed. The church does not plan to allow outside use of facilities until after the first of the year. The MMPC Board decided to hold 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.
