Nanaimo Amateur Radio Association Announcement
In the early hours of March 17, a fire ravaged the city-owned building
which houses the Nanaimo Amateur Radio Association at 1415 Wingrove Street.
Update for all NARA members on the situation of the Departure Bay Community Centre fire of March 17 NARA has now removed all of its belongings from the former clubhouse at 1415 Wingrove Street. Over March 21-22 numerous volunteers came together to collect, sort, inventory, package, and remove items for storage.
Thanks to cooperation from the City of Nanaimo we were able to spend the time required to complete this task. At about 3 pm on March 22 the last item, the antenna trailer, rolled out of the emptied bay for the last time.
Next steps are now under discussion by the NARA executive. But the first task is to extend great thanks and much appreciation to all those who organized and helped with this challenging work.
As the process of finding NARA a new home moves ahead you the members will be kept informed.
Thanks again to all.
