General Membership Meeting
Our general meetings include guest speakers, show-and-tells, recent images and videos from our members and education events.
Our first meeting of the 2018 year, and we have a special presenter, new member Len Messineo. His program, which will start after the mid-meeting break, will be:
Back from Africa
The result of an intensive safari in Kenya focuses on the incomparable wildlife of East Africa. Although the emphasis is on animal life, Len devote ample images of scenery, vegetation, and the famouse Masai, providing an overall appreciation of the Dark Continent. Highlights include wildebeests and zebras crossing the Mara River, the first few minutes in the life of a baby zebra, and surreal depictions of vultures and hyenas consuming a giraffe kill. Riveting music and dialog combine to inform and sometimes shock the viewer. Len describes his goal of creating a program with emphasis on telling a story—with emphasis.
