The President’s Page has been a challenge this month.  Time is zipping by, and I can hardly believe that the end of the year is almost upon us.

I look forward to the new year with great anticipation.  The Club is very lucky to have a very capable and energetic group of Hams taking the reins for the coming year!  Special Kudos to Melinda KG5NWD for accepting another year in the saddle!  I expect a very fun, active, and fulfilling year!

It has been a very great honor to have been allowed to serve as President for the past 2 years and an even greater honor to be chosen as “Ham of the Year”.  I will cherish this forever.

There are so many folks who deserve my heartfelt thanks for their support, advice, commitment, and participation during the past 2 years.  Most of all I am eternally grateful to the other officers and committee chairpersons who worked so hard to make PARC a Club to be proud of.  Again, special thanks to Melinda KG5NWD for her tireless and creative efforts making a showplace among websites!  Remembering that PARC is a “member” run organization, the greatest thanks and admiration should go to you, the members!!  PARC is your Club and every one of you have made it successful, informative, and FUN!

Hope to see you at the Christmas Potluck Luncheon December 7th at the Simms Building.  Don’t forget to sign up on this website!  Can’t think of a more fun and delicious way to end the year.

I must admit I am experiencing a bit of “empty nest syndrome”.  What am I going to do now??

I know…I will continue to be a part of the greatest Amateur Radio Club in existence and do my best to support our incoming Officers and our Club!!
