Dear WHNPA members,
Thanks to everyone who volunteered to help make the WHNPA Inaugural Party at Edison Place Gallery a huge success!
From our muscle men and women who unloaded my van, stuffed goodie bags, prepared the food trays, bartended, sold WHNPA branded merchandise, greeted our colleagues from all around the world, took pictures AND cleaned up and reloaded my van… THANK YOU!!! Your WHNPA cannot continue to enjoy such events without your service!
And ….to the generous WHNPA sponsors who not only donated items for our goodie bags, but also some of the BEST door prizes around!
NIKON, for their cameras, backpacks and laptop bags, PNY for their laptop locks and memory cards, TIFFEN for their Stedicam Smoothie and assortment of camera, laptop and backpacks and PENN Camera (CALUMET) for their gift certificates!!
A few important reminders for you:
