    The Board of Directors invites you to our second annual Highlands County Bar Association Gala in support of the HCBA's philanthropic goals, including the funding of the Janette "Jani" Seamans Branham Memorial Scholarship.  Since 2006, the Branham Scholarship has provided the means for high school graduates of our County to attend South Florida State College (SFSC) on a full-tuition-paid scholarship.

    This year we are privileged to have Senator Denise Grimsley, Florida State Senate (District 26) , address our membership and explain the impact our efforts make at the College. 

    In addition, we are once again awarding the HCBA Lifetime Achievement Award to one of our own esteemed attorneys, a local legend in his own right.  

    Join us for an elegant evening with live music, cocktails, and hors d'oeuvres followed by a seated dinner.  Dress is black-tie optional.  

    HCBA Members and non-members alike must pre-register and purchase advance tickets online.  All proceeds from ticket sales will go toward meeting the Branham Scholarship's present, ongoing obligations to current scholarship recipients.

    • St. Catherine Catholic Church, 820 Hickory Street, Sebring, Florida 33870

    The Highlands County Bar Association extends an invitation to you, your friends, families, and staff to attend this year's Red Mass at 12:00 p.m. on Monday, October 23, 2017, at St. Catherine Catholic Church in Sebring.  

    The Red Mass is currently celebrated in dioceses throughout the United States, including many of the dioceses of Florida, to invoke God's blessing upon the members of the bench, bar, legislature, law enforcement and governmental agencies, all protectors and administrators of the law.  It is traditionally celebrated each year before the beginning of the United States Supreme Court's new docket.  This year's Mass in Sebring will again be celebrated by our diocesan pastor, Most Rev. Frank J. Dewane, Bishop of the Diocese of Venice.  Bishop Dewane will be traveling to St. Catherine in Sebring exclusively to participate in our service.

    Additionally, the Oath of Attorney will be administered to all members of the Florida Bar present.  

    We urge all members of the public, of all faiths, to attend this important service, and to bring your staffs, family, and friends.  There will be a reception in the Church social hall immediately following the service, with lunch provided free of charge.

    Come join your fellow attorneys at this special HCBA general membership meeting featuring Florida Bar President Michael Higer.  President Higer will be on hand to meet our members, speak to the day's issues facing the Bar, and answer questions from our members.  An intrepid road warrior, this visit is part of President Higer's push to visit every voluntary bar in the state -- from Key West to Pensacola -- during his one-year tenure.   To learn more about President Higer, read this excellent article on his accomplishments
