Our most sincere condolences to Bruce & Char for their loss of long-time pet and companion Paula. What a sweet & loving girl!
NO JULY MEETING
The club has generally not held July meetings over the past number of years. Though I was planning on one this year - there is just a lot going on with the club. I have decided not to hold a meeting on July 8th while we are preparing for a rather large event on the 10th. There is no pressing business to take care of, certainly nothing that cannot wait until September.
Thank you for all you do for the club, & 73! Steve - K9STT

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!
