A Joyous Holiday Party!

Ho ho ho!!! What a HLAA holiday party it was! A chance to catch up with old friends, celebrate the holidays, hand out some awards and do our annual White Elephant gift exchange. Most of all, it was a chance for all of us to meet and greet each other in supporting each other through valuable friendships.
