A meeting was held on Nov. 15th at the J. Joel Edwards Public Library in Pike County to discuss plans for starting a chapter of GNPA in the West Central Georgia area. George Bradfield, Vice-President of GNPA addressed the group. Eleven other persons attended the meeting: Alicia Pastiran, Ann Pasley, Bonny Shockley, Francis Hauke, Jim Davidson, Jimmy Day, Johnnie Ann Gaskill, King Davis, Linda Godwin, Margie Lentini, and Sheryl Farr. Although all of them are members of Shutterbugs, membership in Shutterbugs is not a requirement for membership in the new chapter. Photographers (of any skill level) who enjoy photographing nature are invited to join as soon as the new chapter become operational. In the meantime, contact Johnnie Ann Gaskill if you wish to have your name added to the list of persons interested in the new chapter.
