The Sweetwater Camera Club meets the second Thursday of every month at 7 p.m. in the Douglasville Conference Center on Church Street – doors open at 6:30 p.m. The purpose of SCC is to share and promote photography for enjoyment and recreation. This active group conducts monthly photo contests on different themes and presents expert professional photographers as guest speakers at each meeting, maintains a reference library and offers several field trips during the year. The club presents a group show of recent works by its members every other year at the Cultural Arts Council, and its individual members are often included in other exhibits throughout the year as well. This year’s show includes many deservedly well-established local photographers’ images and also introduces Douglas County to some fascinating pieces by newcomers to the community and the club.
