Speaker Kathy Drainville

Our speaker for the evening was Kathy Drainville. Kathy did an excellent job  presenting the case for CERT, Community Emergency Response Team. Some of our members, like our VP John Stanford were already members. As A result of her dynamic presentation I know of several others who have signed up for training.For more information on how to sign up, see the Blog entry below.

Field Day Results

Fred went over the numbers for last year's Field Day exercise. We did about the same as we did in previous years. Where we place is not as important as the fact that we demonstrated that we can communicate when the grid is down, and have a lot of fun in the process.


 We had 58 in attendance of which 16 were guests. Guests are always welcome.
