One New Tech and One New Extra
|Jim KN4QCN left a new Tech, and Andrew WX4AMS new Extra are congratulated by VE Richard W8DUK.|
First the highlights. We have a new Vice President, Mike Shreve. In addition, we have three new board members, Glenn Culler, Aimee Holzer, and Dave Lafave. Bob Doherty stepped down as VP to take care of family matters. We wish him well, and his grandson a speedy recovery. The club benefited greatly by his organizational skills and his ability to line up great speakers for our meetings. Al Sheppard has also stepped down as active board member. He has relocated to Naples Florida to be closer to his son. We will miss his quick wit, kind words, and helpful direction.
• President Matthew Stevens
• Vice President Mike Shreve
