A Special Evening with the Dallas Camera Club
2021 Holiday Christmas Party
(Guests are Welcome. Meal Purchase Required.)
Tuesday, December 7
Starting at 6:00 pm
Buffet Dinner $35/person
Location: Venetian Terrace
215 Mandalay Canal
Las Colinas, Texas 75039
Our Holiday Party plus Awards ... Friends and spouses are welcome.
If you park in a garage the fee will be $10.00. Venetian Terrace will furnish a parking attendant to assist with free parking at street level close to our location. However, if you park at street level you will have to go down stairs to the canal level and then back up the stairs to street level after the event is over. If you have difficulty with stairs you may want to choose the parking garage option. If you park in the Tower 2 garage, which is in the same building as the Venetian Terrace, and go down two levels to Level 1, take the first exit and it comes out at the canal level about 100 feet from the Venetian Terrace, which means “no stairs” coming or going.

Payment can be made with PayPal or bring a check or cash to a meeting.
