As you can see in the numbers below, we had an outstanding year of volunteerism with 29,004 hours reported in ARES activities in the Section. This shows the dedication of our membership in supporting communications in our communities. Great job, everyone. May 2015 be even a better year. Let’s increase the hours in training and public service events and reduce the hours in emergency operations. Mother Nature, please note.
Northland ARES is changing their monthly meetings to the 2nd Thursday of the month at 7:00 PM in the Smithville, MO. Fire Station #2. The weekly voice net moves to Tuesdays at 7:00 PM on the 146.79 repeater.
Carroll County is working on a “How-to” guide for common MOSWIN communications in Region A.
Cecil AC0HA reports many meetings and training sessions were held in the district during the month of December.
Carter Co. reports that their ARES group combined meetings with the Current River ARC and the Carter County COAD for a potluck meet and eat. The amateur community was well represented. (Free Food?).
Douglas Co. ARES did the communications for the Ava Christmas Parade.
I hope everyone had a prosperous and safe holiday. Let’s keep up the good work in the section. Again, I thank everyone for the great support of ARES in 2014.
