Hillcrest Camera Club - Year End Party 2nd Dec 2014 and Membership Renewal for 2015

Hi everyone

1. Year End Meeting and Party - 2nd Dec 2014

The Year End meeting and party is upon us!

  • Please bring your BEST PHOTO OF THE YEAR to be shared with the members. This is the photo that you deem is your best of the year, and may be from any time taken in 2014. It does not need to be a photo shown at the club, however it must be your BEST photo, both technically and creatively. 

  • Please submit your Open, Outing and Creative photos as well.

  • Please bring snacks and eats to be shared. Both savoury and sweet snacks are welcome, but savoury is usually favoured more. 

  • To add to the festivity, please dress up in a "Christmas Theme" - red, green and white.  

Can you help out?:

  • We need 'Santa's Helpers' to assist with decorating the room and putting up lights.

  • We need festive Christmas lights and decorations.

  • Please come at 5.30pm.

Please contact Vanessa or Liz if you are keen to help.

2. Call for Membership Renewals

It was decided at the committee meeting held 18th Nov 2014 to keep the fees the same. We will not be increasing the membership fees! 

Single Membership: R300 
Family Membership: R400

Should you wish to renew your membership, please pay your fees for 2015 as soon as possible. If we haven't received your payment by beginning of March, we will assume that you no longer wish to be a member, and remove you off all email, group and membership lists. 

Please note that there is a NEW BANK ACCOUNT.
Do not pay into the previous account - please set up a new beneficiary for EFT payments.
EFT payments are preferred. We will be charging a fee of  R20 for cash payments. This is to cover the bank fee for depositing cash. If you do a bank deposit, either with cash or cheque, please add on R20 to cover the fee charged by the bank.
