On June 17th, we held our anual banquet for the Detroit Professional Photographers Association at the Roostertail in Detroit for a "Night out on the River". It was a great evening - Julie was the banquet Chairperson and did an awesome job - everyone enjoyed the food, the ambiance of a great location and the camaraderie of friends. For me it was an ending to a great year as the president that I will never forget. My gavel always looked so great on my display shelf among the antique camera collection. But John Glass, the Past president before me, presented me with a new permanent gavel on a plaque for me to enjoy as "Past President". I will be on the board for another year as the Past President and look forward to serving this great organization another year. Julie will be the secretary for the upcoming year and as she has been doing for so long so well - she will continue to be our "raffle girl".
We thank our newsletter Editor Hugh McLean for taking our formal background photos and Brian McElhone for taking the candids. Thanks also to my brother in law and his wife Steve and Pat for taking some photos and being there to support Julie and I. Congratulations to everyone who received prizes and honors.
I have the files for all images taken, so if someone wants any, please contact me.
