It was a long and winding road, er, driveway, that brought 120 HCP members to Malozzi’s Clubhouse for the 2016 edition of the Club’s annual banquet. A cocktail hour and a chance to socialize gave way to an excellent dinner and a PowerPoint presentation that offered members a recap of another successful Club year: DE from Watkins Glenn to Lime Rock; Drive and Dines from Polo to antique cars; a snowstorm threatened October get-away to the 1846 Islands and a June picnic with weather reminiscent of February. All based, as Treasurer Will Waldron reported, on a sound financial foundation. The silent auction that accompanied the dinner continued a tradition of HCP giving, this year’s proceeds going to the Saratoga County EOC. Look for another chance to support the Club’s charitable efforts at the December Holiday party. Admission to the event is a new, unwrapped toy which will be donated to the annual Toys for Tots drive. Watch for an email from Jim with details on the get-together.
As this Club year comes to an end and most of us contemplate a winter with our cars in the garage, take heart. Next year offers another wealth of activities- among them, for the first time, a spring weekend get-away. Activities Chair Louis Dahoda is hard at work planning an overnight trip to Lake Placid and the Wild Center in Tupper Lake. Should be a great time. Stay tuned.
