Hi everyone

1. HCC Year End Function

Please join us for our Year End Function, which this year includes showing "Your Best Photo of 2016", a photo exhibition and celebrating our 10th year anniversary. Its going to be quite a bash! 

We have invited a few guests, mainly the speakers from the last year, plus some of the previous year's HCC members. We have also invited the possible "new members" who saw our exhibition, and showed interest in joining the club.

We will be viewing our "Best Photo of 2016" submissions. There will be a few speeches, some champers and cake and sparklers. For those of you who missed the exhibition, the photos will be on exhibit. The usual feasting, chatting and socialising will follow after that. 

Please bring a plate of eats to share. 
Please dress up in Red & White, with a Xmas hat.
