The MARS Photography Club was organized in 1985 as one of the original clubs of MARS Associates. The purpose of the club is to provide enjoyment to the members through photographic activities such as field trips and competitions, to upgrade technical and creative skills, to share knowledge and experiences, to provide photographic support to the MARS Star staff, and to develop friendships through common interests. Programs of photographic interest are presented at most meetings by either guests or members. These presentations and theme photo competitions are the primary activities at the meetings. Judges are either club members or invited judges. For more information contact one of the officers.
 
Meetings are held at Bemis Library
6014 S. Datura, Littleton, CO
1:00 - 3:30 PM, Second Thursday Monthly  except June, July & August
