Come on December 10
for a Great Photo Show

Here comes the Three Rivers Birding Club's annual December "Slide Slam," the old-fashioned name for the extravaganza of our photographers' favorite pictures. Nowadays, of course, we see them not on slides but in dazzling digital format.

Note that the December meeting is always on the second Wednesday of the month — this year on the 10th — instead of the usual first Wednesday during the rest of the year.

The meeting will be held at the Phipps Garden Center, 1059 Shady Avenue in Shadyside. Doors will open at 6:30 PM for socializing, a business meeting will begin at 7:30, and the program will start at 8.
