RPC Club Meeting October 2008
The Rosetown Photo Club was formed in January of 1983 with a membership of 17 in its first year. Pat Coulter served as the first president, a position she held until she moved away in 1991. Stan Hingston took over as president for 1992 and is still holding this position. The club celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2008.
Membership has varied between 10 and 20 members. The club meets monthly from September to May usually on the first Monday of the month in the basement of the Wheatland Regional Library in Rosetown. The club also plans one Sunday afternoon activity each month such as a field trip or scavenger hunt.

From the first year, the Club was a member of the Prairie Region of Photographic Arts (PRPA) and, with the exception of a few years in the 1990s, has remained active with PRPA.
For a few years after its formation, the Rosetown Club was also a member of the National Association of Photographic Arts (NAPA) (now CAPA – Canadian Association for Photographic Art).
The Rosetown Photography Club is a member club of the Rosetown and District Arts Council.
