Message From the President
The year has sure flown by! As I look back over where we came from, I am amazed at what has transpired in less than a year; An idea, a new club, a great location, and a fantastic nucleus of dedicated members and friends who have truly embodied the spirit of amateur radio. We now have a "shack" complete with an HF station and a computer. We also have several community events under our belts such as "First Night", the "Wellness Walk" and in June- Field Day. We became ARRL affiliated and even had a Holiday party and a fund raiser. (Hey ... this is sounding like a real club!) I give my personal thanks to all the members and friends who have given their time, talents and in some cases, equipment to our organization.
If there is one thing that I could leave with you it is the quote that I read at our first meeting from Hiram Percy Maxim, co-founder of the ARRL, in the September 1927 OST magazine.
