The Lakeland Area Photographic Club has announced Joannie Morgan will serve as president of the Club for 2020. She has been with the club since its inception and replaces Chuck Schaffer, who started the club in 2017.
“Having spent most of my life living in the Northwoods, I developed a love for the natural world around me,” Morgan said. “I learned at an early age that taking pictures of the beauty that surrounds us was a good way to preserve and enjoy it. Through the lens of the camera, I have noticed the little details in plants and animals, as well as appreciating the diverse landscape I call home. Joining the Lakeland Area Photographic Club a few years ago has allowed me to refine my skills and has been an excellent source of inspiration. I’m excited to take on this new journey as president of the club because I believe in its members and its mission.”
The club meets the third Wednesday of the month from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Minocqua Public Library. Currently with the library closed, the Club is doing Zoom meetings. The meetings consist of club business and then a presentation that centers around photography.
Besides monthly meetings, the club has periodic photography outings. So far this year there was an outing to Powell Marsh, with a planned kayak/canoe outing at Carrol Lake. Club member’s photography is also exhibited at the Minocqua Public Library, Great Northern Coffee Traders, and annually at the Howard Young Art Gallery.
Anyone interested in photography is welcome to join. Dues are $10 per year. The Club has a Facebook Page “Lakeland Area Photographic Club” and a Group Page “LAPC Group.” For more information contact Joannie at [email protected]
