Arde Nelson our new Honorary Member of M&M ARC!
At our May meeting, Arde Nelson (KA9WAR) was recognized for his many years of service and support to the Marinette & Menominee ARC with an Honorary Membership for life, only one of a few in the club's history. Most recently recognized for his organization of the Peshtigo Historical Days "Special Event Station" coming up later this year, Arde was appointed as Honorary Chairperson of the committee for the 150th Anniversary of the Peshtigo Fire by President Steve (K9STT). "Arde was instrumental in securing a spot for the ham radio special event and would likely not be happening without Arde's hard work", said Steve.

 

HELP!   Volunteers Needed for Club events

Let's face it - summer is coming and we're all making plans to make the most of it.  Volunteering for a few hours doesn't consume a full day and gives us an opportunity to get together with other hams for a little fun!  Consider donating a little time to raise some money for the club this year, we'll all be better off for shouldering a bit of the burden!

The Peshtigo Fire Cemetery is a cemetery in Peshtigo, Wisconsin. The cemetery is the burial location of the charred remains of victims of the Peshtigo Fire, of October 8, 1871, the deadliest natural fire in the history of the United States. Identified victims were buried in traditional marked graves, and over 300 unidentified victims were buried in a mass grave. The site is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The memorial at the cemetery was the first official state historical marker authorized by the State Historic Society of Wisconsin.[2] The cemetery is located adjacent to the Peshtigo Fire Museum, which is a memorial museum for the fire.

The Peshtigo Fire occurred around the town of Peshtigo in northeastern Wisconsin on October 8, 1871, the same day that the Great Chicago Fire began. Historically, the Peshtigo Fire has been somewhat overshadowed by the Great Chicago Fire, though the Peshtigo Fire covered a much greater area and had many more fatalities. The Peshtigo Fire burned 1,875 square miles and destroyed twelve communities, killing between 1,200 and 2,500 people. The fire is thought to have been caused by small fires used for land-clearing that blew out of control and created a firestorm.
