(see schedule) Coos County Fair From the President s Desk Renee s Ramblings 2018 October October ALREADY? Where does the time go? The convention is upon us and we still have things to do! Keep your fingers crossed that we get it all done before zero (0) hour. I d like to thank all the volunteers who made the conference possible. There are just too many to name and I d be afraid of forgetting someone and hurting feelings. One thing I did forget was to mention last month, was the Coos County Fair Best in Show in the photography department. A huge congratulations to Elise Ciarolo with her wolf image! Well deserved! Besides the convention, we have some fun events coming up. Halloween night we will have a table set up for us at Pony Village Mall for the annual Malloween experience! Last year was our first year passing out candy 7

8 and we all had a lot of fun. Carol Todd and I even went through the haunted house. She screamed, and I laughed! Mark your calendars for Wed, Oct. 31 from 5:00 8:00 pm. (Or until we run out of candy.) Bring a bag of candy to share with the kids in costumes. November finds us participating in our semiannual Pony Village Show and Sale. Take in and hanging of images will be Wed, November 14 at 5:30 I believe. The show is November th during the hours the Mall is open. Bonnie S. will have a sign-up sheet to babysit the show at our Monday meetings. Don t forget, if you enter photographs, you must take at least one shift during the show (or twist someone s arm to do it for you). Thanks Bonnie, you do a wonderful job! Another fun event in December is Shore Acres. We will be hosting in the Gardener s House, passing out cookies and Apple Cider. Our shift is 6:45 9:30 on Saturday, December 22 nd. Bring your camera and come early for some Shore Acre Lights masterpiece photography.

There were lots of images displayed and plenty of help throughout the show. We got good reviews. We sold around $100 in raffle tickets on Coos Sand and Sea s raffle quilt as a thank you for the loan of their hanging system. We had good sales and accepted credit cards for the first time during a sale. Next year if we do it again we need to plan for the number of images and schedule the workers, so we won t be getting in the customers way. Customers were looking for local images such as the lighthouses, sand dunes, the bay and basin. $350 in sales were made and OCPA charged 10% plus a small fee if a credit card was used.
