I hosted my first annual PHOTO GEEK CHRISTMAS PARTY at the ROCKBURN PUB in Hinchinbrook, Quebec on December 15th. We had a great turn-out despite the heavy snowstorm and resulting bad roads. Everyone eagerly shared a couple of their favorite images and the food was fantastic as expected. John Zimmerman (President, Montreal Camera Club) passed the hat for Missing Children's Network / Enfant-Retour Québec; and we raised a total of $445.03.  Special thanks to Joann for opening the pub just for us!
