Editorial:
I counted 31 in attendance on a warm January night.  January is dues month and Treasurer Wallace was busy doing his important job.  If you missed the meeting be sure to come next month or mail your 2023 dues to Tom using the P.O. Box on the Contact Us page.  Prayers go out to Ray Sturch - W4JOV who is under the weather.  It was also announced that past President Robert Frye - KJ4MIC has moved to The Brennity at Daphne Assisted Living so when you are in the area stop by and visit a while.  I hope to see all at the meeting next month!


Please note:
The club's policy is to publish the last meeting minutes on the website well in advance of the next meeting.  This saves time at the meetings and gives members a chance to analyze and discuss any items at the meeting.  The minutes also include more details on club business than is possible in the Kerchunker.  Please go to the Meetings Page to view current and past meeting minutes.
