Taking Photos at This Reunion:

For those of you who plan to take photos at the Reunion for submission to the October 2007 issue of THE FLYING CIRCUS, please take note:

If you use a digital camera, you can send us JPG files (either by mail or by email). If you are able to get prints on a CD, those would be welcomed also (these last two methods don't involve scanning the actual photographs and are easier to manage). However, any print photos you send us are most welcomed!

You can send your photos to:

Barbara Gotham, 130 Colony Road, West Lafayette, IN 47906-1209
Email: 380th.ww2@gmail.com

Please get them to Barb before October 15 to allow plenty of time to get them into the October 2007 issue (to be mailed out in late October).
