HipClub Monthly Meeting
August 13 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm
July Program: Thanks to our fellow member, Ray Viator, who gave a great informative presentation with his knowledge and wisdom on moonshots. He also has a book, Houston, Space City USA, published by Texas A&M Press that incorporates his pictures of the Moon with the Houston area. He was the inspiration for me to get out early last Saturday on the 50th Anniversary of the landing on the Moon to make pictures and it turns out Ray was there too.
August Program: At our August meeting will be Capt. Karie Hubnik who is a freelance photographer in the Houston area, specializing in senior and family portraiture, events, and commercial photography. A portion of her photography business specializes in military and veteran events, WWII historical preservation and historical reenactments, as a way to give back and bring awareness to the sacrifices veterans, service members, and their families give on our behalf, the legacy they leave behind for generations to come, and to better understand the price to protect and maintain our freedom. www.keeping-history-alive.com
Possible New Location: We always want to explore ways to make HIP more rewarding for all of us. One of these is ensuring we have have a great meeting place that promotes camaraderie, interaction, sharing experiences and wisdom, and is welcoming. The Downtown Y meets most of our criteria, but if something better suited arises, we need to explore that opportunity. Alan M. and Geoffrey have working on a possible new location that hopefully can be presented at our August meeting. If that works out, we will move to the new location in either September or October.
