Reminder – Photo contest 2011

We need your best pictures for the photo contest soon !

We had scheduled a meeting on July 31st but we will have to postpone it to August 1st.

Since no room is available at the Town Hall we’ll have the meeting at my place: 3 Maurice-Côté road (across from 29 Owl’s head) at 7 p.m. I would like to know in advance how many people will be attending. Email or call me as soon as possible: (450) 292-0547

Deadline for photos will be August 8th to let you time for printing but you can bring them of course on the 1st. This meeting is to help you to choose your 3 best photos showing our natural, cultural, landscape, architectural or archaeological Heritage. Bring them in small or big format or on a USB key. Jean-François Boulais will give you pro input and advice. We will also talk about the photo exhibition coming in October.
