Our fall 2009 meeting was held at the Red Hook Brewery meeting hall in Portsmouth, New Hampshire on October 19, 2009.  . Jim Miller, MCPF hosted two very informative afternoon classes (Object mounting with clear film, and adhesives in the shop). 32 attended 

There was a one hour “Meet and Greet” session where members and perspective members mingled, had appetizers, voted for popular choice, and talked with the 13 vendors that were set up with tables.

The evening meeting had 54 attendees, and included door prizes, future meeting info, print competition judging and critique, new board members nominated, and an “Ask a dumb question” panel; which was a smash success.  This may become a regular feature of our future meetings. The panel members included Rich Riman, Harry Gaston, CPF, and Jim Miller, MCPF    

Our next chapter meeting will be a dinner meeting on Sunday January 31, in Franklin MA.  Details are forthcoming.
