THE Wodonga-Albury Camera Club will this year celebrate its 60th anniversary.
A number of activities are planned, including a historical exhibition in Reflections on High, in High Street, Wodonga to start next week; an exhibition of photographs by current and former members of the club at Creators Art Space, Wodonga in February; and an anniversary dinner to be held at the Lavington Panthers on Saturday February 9.
We are seeking all former members to take part in the festivities, including the photographic exhibition.
A history of the club is being written and the input of former members would be appreciated.
The Wodonga Camera Club was formed in 1953 partly due to transport difficulties in getting to the Albury Camera Club — few people had cars in those days.
The Albury club folded in about 1960 and the Wodonga club prospered.
The name of the club was changed to the Wodonga-Albury Camera Club in 1970 to reflect the formation of the Albury-Wodonga Development Corporation.
Wodonga came first in the name to reflect the origins of the club.
The club remains a registered association in Victoria, and has about 60 members.
If you would like to attend activities or even just provide historical information, please contact the club via email at firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible, or contact Paul Temple directly on 0401 950 273.
