Bye, Bye Eventbrite! Thank you for your patience as we continue to work on finding the simplest way to provide access to members for RSVPing and purchasing tickets to events. After experimenting with Eventbrite this fall, we have ultimately decided to return to ticket sales on our website. The costly fees did not seem to outweigh the benefits of the switch so we hope this switch back will make everyone happier (and life a bit more simple!)
Please find all upcoming events on our website and purchase tickets under the member log-in using PayPal. If you are having trouble logging in please reach out to the club email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we will do our best to assist you! If you have forgotten your log-in or password there is a way to reset it directly on the website!
New Website RSVP Feature!!!
Since we are all here to make friends, sometimes it is nice to see who is going to an event when you are signing up! A new website feature has been added so members can see the "guest list" on our events page. After logging in, members who have purchased tickets will be listed under the event details on the page. Please see the screenshot to help you navigate this on the website!

Dinner Club: Any takers?? As a board we have been discussing bringing back some of the oldie but goodie activities of HNC's yonder years. One of the beloved traditions was a progressive dinner club where interested individuals could sign up to be added to a dinner club. What is a dinner club?? Traditionally, a progressive dinner club involves attending three different host homes for appetizers, dinner and dessert. Hosts rotate and all individuals involved contribute. We are still ironing out the details but wanted to poll club members to see who might interested in joining! Please email email@example.com if you are interested!
