Flagpole Photographers Camera Club will host a general meeting and members’ photo competition on Thursday, April 17. The meeting will include a guest speaker on how to enter digital images into competition. The public is invited to join members of the local photography club for the program, to be held in the lower meeting room of C.H. Booth Library, 25 Main Street.
