3rd Annual Photography Exhibit
It’s our Third Annual Photography Exhibition and this year our Milton Canoe & Camera Club member photographers will be displaying the beauty and charm of Queens County.
Our photographers have embraced Queens County with their personal and favourite photographic technique. You’ll see beautiful landscapes, long exposures, reflections, famous structures, photos that look like paintings and more.
As a fundraising effort our photographers will be selling their Queens County prints to raise funds for our club. The proceeds from your purchase will help support the club to run its programs and services that benefit the kids and families in our community.
Come and enjoy a night out, on Friday September 16th, from 6:30 to 9:00 PM, at the clubhouse 137 West Street in Milton, meet the photographers and take home a piece of Queens County!
