Hunt’s Photo and Video, based in Boston, has agreed to be a sponsor of the Palmerton Camera Club. Each month we will get advance notice of specials that we can pass on to our members in good standing. The Palmerton Camera Club has no desire to tell you where to shop, we just want to pass on news of good deals. In fact, if you want to opt out of the Hunt’s news, please let one of the officers know.
Remember to check your email for monthly specials available to members only through Hunt's Photo and Video
