    Dear Members,

    We regret to inform you that the Introduction to Photography 101 workshop, scheduled to occur on Saturday, March 01, 2014, has been canceled. We were hoping the weather would turn in our favor, but unfortunately the chance of rain is still extremely high and we care about the well being of your equipment as well as your comfort during class. The good news is we run this class often so there are many opportunities for you to attend. Please see our home page for a list of upcoming dates and RSVP for whichever one you can attend. As always, please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions. Have a wonderful weekend.
