WHEN: Sunday, August 9, 2015

WHERE: Fran and Vernice Kingsbury’s Home, 404 East St., Ponca, NE 

PHOTO OP…Ponca State Park


If you have never been to the park, or if you haven’t been recently, you are in for an enjoyable experience! It is beautiful, scenic and well cared for.  The National Missouri River Resource Center is worth your trip and the 14 new Lodges that are being built bring the total to 31 lovely modern and beautiful places to stay. They are worth seeing even from the outside. Fishing is also good in the small lake among the Lodges.


We will eat at 5:00 in the Kingsbury’s backyard.   If it is raining or real hot, we will eat in the house.  The camera club will furnish chicken and last names starting A to J are to bring salads or appetizers and the rest should bring potatoes, vegies or desserts. Lemonade and coffee will also be furnished.  Do come early to go to the Park (entry fee is $5 per carload so come to the Kingbury’s first and double up with other camera club members) or just come to visit with your camera club friends.


To get to Fran and Vernice’s home in Ponca (404 East ST.), take Hwy 20 west out of Sioux City then turn North on Hwy 12. When you see the sign to turn into Ponca just go straight North to a dead end (the Library) then turn right and go East 2 blocks to East St and make a left.  Go about a block and a half (you will go past the Funeral Home).  Their house is green with lots of steps up to it. To go to the backyard where there are less steps, turn right and go East at the Funeral Home then turn left at the first road. The long driveway takes you up to their house. You can park in the lower yard (they call it the field) if the upper half is full. 


Hope you all can come.  Please let me know via email so we can have enough tables, chairs and chicken!
