Painted Churches in Schulenburg

Septemeber 15-16, 2017

English, German, Czech, and other European citizens settled in this area bringing with them their religious beliefs, tools, and way of life. The PPC will spend September 16, beginning in the morning, touring the beautiful and colorful churches built in this area. Schulenburg is approximately 4 hours from Dallas, requiring an overnight stay. There are four churches clustered in the Schulenburg area which requires driving to get to. We will meet at 9 am at the Schulenburg Chamber of Commerce located at 618 North Main Street. We can then car pool to the churches. With additional driving, there are other churches that can be visited if desired.

The following link shows a map of where the churches are located:

Hotel reservations are to be made individually at the area hotels. The chamber of commerce web address has a list of hotels.

Historic Downtown Plano Photowalk

October 7, 2017 - 9 am to Noon

The Plano Photography Club activity for October will be participation in the Kelby Worldwide Photowalk. We did this as an activity in 2014. Some details may change as plans are firmed up, but for right now we will plan to meet in McCall Plaza (998 E 15th Street) just west of downtown Plano at 9 am on Saturday, October 7. We will take a walking tour following a loop of about one and a quarter miles that visits some of the 100-year-old homes and other historical buildings around downtown Plano, then meet for lunch in a downtown Plano restaurant.

Some of the possible photography subjects we’ll encounter:

Prizes are available for those who register with KelbyOne and submit images to their contest following the walk. Registration with KelbyOne is not a requirement. Club members are welcome to join the walk either way. There will also be non-club members who join us, so this is a good opportunity to meet some new people and invite them to the PPC!
