A FEW THINGS TO NOTE;

1 - You are looking at our totally new club website, which  we launched on SmugMug on February 2. It is not totally finished, but you can see the main elements, some of which will be fleshed out over the next couple of weeks. New key features include member personal Portfolios, the last 11 FHPC Annual Photo Exhibitions, and a collection of Photo Op picture galleries from past club Meetups.The last item is driven by the fact that the club will not be planning any carpool based meetups, and the collection of Photo Ops will give the members a way to assess for themselves the desirability of locations they may not have ever visited personally.

2 - For the duration of 2021, the club plans to continue to operate in a COVID-19 compliant manner, and plans to continue virtual monthly meetings with guest speakers on Zoom and the continuation of the monthly slideshows. In  order to simplify getting images to the club in preparation of the slide shows, we will be implementing the use of a designated Dropbox folder into which the members can deposit their images for the month, without the hassle of sending the images by email. Just a simple copy and paste of the files to go in the slideshow,  with filenames starting with your last name.

3 - Regarding any concern about putting personal images up in the Member Portfolios, please be comforted by the knowledge that having the website implemented on SmugMug allows us to take advantage of SmugMug's "Right Click" security, meaning no-one can right click and steal any image being displayed.

4 - Finally, we wish to thank Kathleen Reeder for contracting with us to provide the experience and expertise to create a simpler, more maintainable image-centric website for the club with more features the members will use on a regular basis.
