Missouri Section ARES November Activity Report

November is over and the turkey has been digested. The end of the year is fast approaching. I want to thank the membership for all of your support of ARES in the Missouri Section. It has been a busy year and hopefully this last month will be a quiet one so attention can be focused on the upcoming holidays. May your holidays be happy and bright and hopefully Santa Claus will add to your shack.
