Sep 23: Sunday Field Trip

M van Swieten – Day at the Beach

Did you know that Kamloops has over 25 murals? New ones seem to be added every year. The plan is to take a stroll around town along the Alley Art Mural Walking tour and take pictures of pictures!

Bring your cameras, tripods and be prepared to buddy up. We’ll meet at 2:00pm at Kamloops Library Square. (Note this is a Sunday.)

Sep 26: Italy/Sicily Before Your Eyes

Ever been to Italy or Sicily?  George Wycherly was fortunate in being able to visit both places this year and will regale us with his photos and stories. Join us in an armchair tourist exploration of one of the most storied countries in the world!

Antique: Defined as a collectible object that has value because of its considerable age.

Yes I know we have a number of members who are valuable  and of “considerable age” but remember – we can’t collect them — or can we?
