December 16th, 2017
The annual HCC Christmas Party was held on December 16th in the Heights at St. Andrews Episcopal Church, 1819 Heights Blvd, Houston.
The Club provided turkey & ham, soft drinks, ice, plates and cutlery. Members contributed their own dishes, from appetizers to side dishes, desserts and wine.
And here are videos of the sumptuous food table, from the appetizers and main courses down to the desserts, and also the line of members waiting to get at it:
Commodore Honey Leveen served as master of ceremonies.
Harmon Everett put together an amazing slideshow of fifteen hundred, yes, that's right, 1,500 photos, which are all the photos from 2017 trips posted on the club photo album web page.
Everyone was having such a good time chatting with old friends that the conversations didn't start petering-out until three-hours later at 10 o'clock.
A big thanks to those members who arrived early to decorate tables and set up the food. To those who contributed delicious food to share, and for those who stayed late to put things away and clean up.
Special mention goes to Liz Dennis & Frank Ohrt. They procured the wonderful facility for us, and watched over the details before, during and after the party. They arrived before the rest of the volunteers and were the last to leave. And they kept the coffee brewing!
