It was announced that the camera club will have a booth at the "Thunder in the Ville Festival" in Wintersville June 29. Pictures donated by some of the members will be auctioned off. Pictures include a vintage train, eagles, a mail pouch barn, an Amish buggy, an elk and a West Virginian grist mill. There will be a 50/50 drawing and a drawing for a free club membership.
