More details will soon follow, but in the meantime, A BIG THANK YOU to Canon.

DCS Donated 1/3 of January Membership Proceeds to Tsunami Relief Efforts

As we did, I’m sure that most of you rushed to make donations to the Tsunami Relief effort in the days following the tragedy. Now that the events are fading from the daily news coverage, DCS would like to remind you that the needs for relief still exist. With that in mind, and with your help DCS was able to donate $215.00, 1/3 of all membership proceeds that came in during January, to Tsunami Relief. So, if you know someone who might be interested in becoming a member of DCS, please forward them this e-mail. Many thanks to all who joined us during January. You helped support The Digital Cinema Society, and at the same time, the very important work of the Tsunami relief effort. Digital Cinema Society – Sign Up
