    We have a potential location and its FREE! I talked to my Pastor at Town Creek Baptist Church (250 Town Creek Road) and explained the camera club's difficulty in finding a suitable location for a display options presentation. He gave permission for the club to use church facilities on either Nov 14, Nov 29, or Dec 6 from 1 -3 PM. The room has available tables to hold photo displays, a large screen TV for electronic displays, and chairs. Up to about 30 people should be no problem. Some church members may also want to attend. There is a requirements: that the room be left as we found it (for Sunday School the following morning). Being a Christian church, I believe it would be appropriate to open the meeting with a Biblical prayer in Jesus Christ's name.

    Please advise if this is an acceptable proposal and of the desired date. If approved, I will submit the written Facilities Use Request.

    Can you explain what exactly are you looking to do? Is this to take photos outside or have an actual meeting? Renting a room from Odell Weeks doesn't cost much. And you only rent the shelters that are outside.

      It's $80 for 4 hours , holding approximately 20 people . There is a possibility to receive half back if the room is left in it's original state.

      I haven't been with this group very long so I'm
      Not sure if what is on the yearly calendar. Only what you post.

    Just called Odell Weeks. Their first question was, "Are we a 501C non-profit organization?" I understand that we need to show them some documentation demonstrating that fact or we would have to make our request as a profit making organization and would have a cost. If we can coordinate more directly by phone or text my number is[masked]

      The library accepted the explanation that we are a non-fee-charging community arts group.

    Did not try Odell Weeks. Will try to try them tomorrow.

    November 3

  • Martin F.

    Just called library reference desk. They said Nov 15 taken, Dec 6 taken from 2-4, Dec 13 taken. My Sunday's are taken for church. Librarian suggested Thur Dec 11 or Dec 18 from 5:30 - 8:45.

    • David E

      I was keeping the library as a last resort due to their limited hours. We've had meetings there before. Did you check with Odell Weeks Center? I can't reserve time there due to living outside Aiken.

      November 3

  • Martin F.

    Has this ben done yet? I live in Aiken. Would Nov 29, Dec 6 or Dec 27 be acceptable to ask for?

    November 3

    • David E

      Nov 15, Dec 6, or Dec 13 should be OK. I'm not sure we would get many attendees any of the weekends around Thanksgiving or Christmas, so Nov 29 or Dec 27 may not be good days to schedule.

      November 3

  • David E

    Would someone who lives inside Aiken city limits mind seeing if you can tentatively schedule a weekend time at Odell Weeks Center for us to do this Meetup? Lyn and I live outside Aiken and so can't reserve time there. Any time on a Saturday or a Sunday afternoon (1PM or later). We'd probably need two hours. We'll firm up the reservation after seeing member's responses to the date/time.

    I offer of possible location, our home in Woodside Plantation. I have some sample type display technologies, but not all. Others would need to bring display types that I don't have. Help would be needed to explain the advantages and disadvantages of each type. I certainly don't know nearly enough and am seeking to learn. If the location is OK then we can discuss a date. A limit of about 20 people would need to be placed on attendees.
