Tuesday, August 21st, 2007

The EYC Photo Gallery has steadily grown over the past year.  We are excited to announce that Erika Gruner has accepted the role of Club Photographer.  Please send your digital photos to either her email address:  or put them on a CD or DVD and send them to her home address in the EYC Directory.  Please send full/high resolution photos to get the best quality online.  By sending your photos you are accepting that they will be shared on the internet.  

We are still in search of a Club Historian to help label all the photos and start to find, scan and post historical photos.  This is a tremendous opportunity to share and archive our rich history.  If you are willing to consider this role, call David Sauter at 920-217-5851.
