Upcoming Meeting

Tuesday, December 16, 2014 at 6:30 pm

Our general meeting will start promptly at 6:30, at the Springfield Justice Center.

Our year-end, December 2014, EARS meeting will be this coming Tuesday, Dec. 16 at 6:30 PM in the Justice Center EOC room. The program will be a PowerPoint presented by Jim WA7JS on “Amateur Radio Operating Etiquette.” I am sure that everyone will find it useful. Since this is our yearly Board of Officers voting for 2015, please try to be present to cast your vote. The nominating committee will deliver their report. I will bring some Starbucks hot chocolate and some cookies, and if you feel so inclined, you can bring something if you wish to share.

I hope to see you at the meeting!

    Come join us.

    73,
    Ron WJ7R, Pres. EARS
