Randy Shellenbarger, president of the Grand Lake Photo Club, has set Saturday, Oct. 31, for an early morning shoot at one of the most scenic fall spots in Ohio, John Bryan State Park just outside Yellow Springs. He would like participants to assemble at the Neil Armstrong museum (Wapakoneta) parking lot at 6:15 a.m. so transportation can be decided and to assure arrival time at the park by sunrise for the best two hours of morning daylight.

Randy has invited members of the Van Wert Area Photography Club to join his group, which would mean Van Werters would need to meet at the Salvation Army parking lot on South Washington Street no later than 5:15 a.m. to determine transportation and make it to the Space Museum by 6:15 a.m. Those seeking further information should contact Randy at 419.296.7921 or by email at

Jan Sorensen, Lima and Van Wert photography club member, writes, “Dear Club members — I have listed my house for sale and will be moving to Florida to be near my sister and daughter.  I have kept Dick Rohr’s wonderful setups for various still life photography scenes for several years now, and need the space.   I will give you as many as you want on a first-come first-served basis.  If anyone is interested, please call me at 419.999.1676 for location and directions.  I will have them till Nov. 8.  After that, they will be donated to Habitat for Humanity. 
I will miss you all.  Thank you — Jan Sorensen”
