Donations can be made to The Living Desert towards a memorial tree to be planted in Allan's honor. Allan will be greatly missed.

  6. Also, we have learned of the passing of a great photographer, Nancy Rotenberg, after a battle with cancer. Nancy was an inspiration and muse for many of us through the workshops she gave to our club and those some of us attended at her Pennsylvania home. She was also the inspiration for the shooting through glass workshops we give from time to time.
