50th Anniversary Year Update
April, 2014
by Honey Leveen

Save this date: October 11, 2014.  It is the date of HCC’s big 50th anniversary party.

HCC's dedicated party planning committee is working hard behind the scenes to create an event we will all remember. Our committee has met twice already, and will continue to meet in the same room where HCC meets at 5:30 PM on the same day of HCC’s general meeting. Our next planning meeting is April 9, 2014, and you are welcome to attend. Your participation and talent will be appreciated on whatever level you can offer.

HCC’s 50th anniversary party will be at Clear Lake Park North, in a beautiful facility. Leading up to the party, we’ll have a 50-boat, 50-year flotilla, followed by a catered party, raffle, auction, exhibitors, and special anniversary program.  All HCC members, family, friends, past members, and HCC’s partner organizations will be invited.

At our last meeting, we were able to outline a tentative party schedule:
