You can also send them via email to firstname.lastname@example.org The Association will retain a copy of all material submitted for historical purposes. Also please make it clear if there are any photos that you would not want to have placed in the gallery. If you can add information or names and dates to the existing photos in the RVR Gallery send the info to the association so we can update the captions.
