The Fortuna Camera Club extended their congratulations to one of their youngest members 11 year old Emily Laursen for her wining entry “Leaf Skeletons in the Water.” Emily and her brother Alexander have been members for a few years now and they have a very creative and artistic style of approaching things. Our monthly blind competition has our youngest members competing against experienced photographers and to our delight and amazement they are giving us a new way to look at the world of photography. The Fortuna Camera Club meets the last Friday of the month at the United Methodist Church at 10th and N St. Fortuna at 7:30 p.m. All visitors are welcome and this is a family club, so bring the kids or bring a friend.

For questions on the club you can call club President Kathy Blanchard at 442-6282.
