Annual Christmas Dinner

President Rick Johnson (WB4RLJ) has arranged for our club to have Christmas Dinner this year at the Piccadilly Cafeteria located in the Fort Henry Mall.  We will meet in front of the cafeteria as a group and enter as a group for private seating.  As this is always a family event, please bring your family.  Prospective hams are welcome too.  Dave Stevens (WB4DES) always makes the White Elephant/Dirty Santa time, FUN!!!  Cost is suggested at no more than $10 or something another ham would enjoy.  As always, the club meeting is suspended for the dinner.  See you December 12 at 1800 in front of the restaurant!!!

Elections

Ah yes, it is that time of the year when we elect new officers for next year.  Rick Johnson is running for President, George DeVault is running for Vice President, Neil Weber is running for Treasurer, and Ken Klotz is running for Secretary.  Of course any one wanting to run for office can throw their name out at the time of the election.  As always, the election is held before dinner on the night of the Christmas dinner.
