After dinner, a fun evening is planned by our HSC Activities Director, Lady Sally Padron. We’ll be playing a fun game - “guess what’s in the bag”? Everyone is asked to bring an item in a paper bag. The audience members will be asked to squeeze the bags and guess what is inside. There will be a prize to the person who guesses the most items inside. So let’s make these bag items a challenge to guess (no sharp items or explosives, please - just joking!). This contest will be a lot of fun! Don’t forget to participate by bringing an item - I predict a lot of laughs!
