Where we are today...
As of September, 2019, our meetings were moved to a new site, the Judith A Resnik Community Learning Center in Akron, at 65 N. Meadowcroft Drive (just off W. Market St.)
Our intention for this year was to hold two meetings per month, on the second and fourth Wednesdays of each month (with a few exceptions). Meetings were to begin at 7 PM, but doors would open at 6:30 PM and members and visitors would be welcome to contact our folks about questions dealing with photography. With the advent of coronovirus, all of this schedule has been suspended, unfortunately.
Membership is available to all levels of photographers. Annual dues are $25 per person for this first year.
A Bit of History
Our club traces its roots to the late 1800's, but with the onset of WW I, the group suspended activities. They later were resumed in 1937, and then incorporated shortly thereafter. A famous early member was Willard Seiberling, son of F. A. Seiberling, founder of the Goodyear Tire and Rubber company. He would host wonderful photo outings at Stan Hywet Hall, his family home.
After holding our meetings for several decades in Cuyahoga Falls, we have recently relocated to the Judith A. Resnik Community Learning Center in Akron. We are encouraged by the results of recent efforts to expand our membership in this new location!
Over time, we have evolved from film to the digital era, and are mostly active in projected media, with an occasional local display of prints at public locations. Our most recent exhibit was at the Western Reserve Hospital in 2019. We are currently planning for a display in 2020 at the Stow-Monroe Falls public library.
