Sept 7 Thurs 10-11 am Hanging Stu will try to be in the corridor of Club House One, outside the Maryland Room, to help with hanging one matted and framed photograph per member. We can use 8 x 10 smaller photos and larger 10 x 13 photos, etc. Sometimes the pictures are a bit too big. Be sure that the frames have appropriate wires on the back that fit the LW established hooks. At the same time, pick up your photograph which was hanging in the LW Library and which Fred Shapiro too down on Saturday, Sept 2.

Sept 12 Tues 7 pm Prog. Meeting Exercise Rm Please attend and bring your checkbook for paying annual dues of $20 / member to Treasurer George Kaye. Checks are the best way to pay, as it is a record of the payment with your name on it. Cash is often difficult to assign to individual members. DO NOT WRITE YOUR NAME ON CASH. Several members of the club will give instructions as to how the competitions work and how to mat and submit your winning entries. And, we need your membership payments so that a new roster can be constructed, with emails that work. Be sure to update your address information so that you receive the email announcement such as this item.

Sep 17 Sun 2:30 pm Photo Matinee Aud.
On Sunday afternoon, beginning at 2:30 pm (new time) in the auditorium of Clubhouse Two,
Stewart Lillard will present his "Backing Up Your Memories" Photo Matinee, sponsored by the Rossmoor Camera Club. The theme of his photographs is the importance of using the camera to recall memories. His photos trace elements of the history of his family in Maryland during the 17th, 18th and early 19th centuries. Lillard used stored records from the National Archives and the Library of Congress in Washington, DC--nearby repositories available by a short Metro ride. He used these records and photographs to publish a book, Lost in the District, Lost in the Federal Territory: the Life and Times of Doctor David Ross, of Bladensburg, Maryland (a small village just east of the Dictrict's line on the Eastern Branch of the Potomac River. In that village, Dr. Ross was in a position to recommend the "taking up of arms" against Great Britain to his river neighbors of the Committee of Correspondence, George Washington and George Mason. He also helped to organize and operate the lower Antietam Iron Works in Frederick (now Washington) County after 1765 until his death about 1778. The extended family was also involved in the development of several sections of Montgomery County and the District of Columbia: Middlebrook Plantation, Haarlem Plantation, and Widows Mite tract of Washington City (from Farragut Square, north, to Dupont Circle, and Kalorama).
