I would like to thank Eileen Brown, Jeff Knox, George LeClaire, Bob Chwedyk, Paul Valade, Laura Stoecker, Gilbert Boucher and other Daily Herald staff for hosting an excellent program at the Lakewood Forest Preserve near Wauconda on Sept. 19. My husband and I had a wonderful time, and I gained some insights into how to improve my photos. In addition, the staff members at the Lake County Museum, led by Katherine Hamilton-Smith, were friendly and helpful. It was our first visit to the museum, but it won't be our last. The facility is really a treasure.
