Info

Hello NARA Members:

An update on two things: T-shirt pickups and a planning get together for the Open House set for May 11.
Both are set for April 6 (a Saturday) at 1 pm the clubhouse at 1415 Wingrove.
– T-shirts: Those who have not picked up your cool-looking shirts from Lanaya should be able to do so on that afternoon.
- Open House: The agenda is twofold, first to discuss ideas and seek suggestions for new ones, and second to coordinate volunteer efforts.
- Proposed time is for the May 11 Open House is 11 to 4. At this point the following ideas are up for consideration: HF operation; CW left foot demo; mini fox hunt; grab & go demos; solar charging demo; sale table (restricted to contributions from members only as it's not a swap meet); displays of other organizations & related businsses.
I am also looking for input on how to get the word out to the wider community.
So any ideas or help you can provide will be greatly appreciated.

For questions about T-shirts please get back to Lanaya (lklettke51@gmail.com), and for questions about the open house and April 6 session get back to Paul (walton.p@telus.net).

73s to all,
Lanaya
