The Florida Museum of Photographic Arts in Tampa has invited the Bradenton JPI Photo Group for a free docent tour of the museum. It usually is $10 for admission.
We need to get an accurate headcount if you are coming, please register here on Meetup. The docent tour is at 3 PM. Please give yourself ample time to arrive.
If you wish to express your thanks, please feel free to leave a donation for the museum. This is a voluntary contribution and isn't a requirement.
