2016 Christmas Gathering

Written by Hockomock Joe on . Posted in Uncategorized

Once again members of HDP and their guests came together to share some stories, photographic accomplishments, salad and pizza, and a Yankee Swap.

About twenty-two members and two spouses signed on. We also had someone show up to check out the club. I’ll bet he was surprised to be served pizza and salad. I did remind him that is not what we do EVERY night!

Written by Hockomock Joe on . Posted in Above and Beyond

The Fall 2016 Audubon cover will feature an image from Ron Reynolds! He was modest in not telling us just how many others images were being considered – best guess several hundred!
