WCARES University

Greetings:

My name is Tim Kreth, AD4CJ, and I am with the Williamson County ARES (WCARES).

We are having our annual license classes starting in just one month. They will run for 5 consecutive Saturday mornings from 0800-1230 at the Williamson County Administration Building in Franklin. The dates are February 6,13,20,27, and March 5. The Nashville VE team will have a VE session on March 12, 2016.

We have a few slots left open for the technician and general class courses, if any of your members are interested. There is a link to sign up for the courses at www.wcares.org.

We call our courses WCARES University, and have been teaching for the past 8 years. We have a great group of Elmers and Instructors, and welcome any of your members.

Christmas Dinner

NARC Members

 

Don’t forget the club annual Christmas Dinner this year at Ryan’s on Gallatin Rd at 6:00 p.m. on December 17th.  For those who would like to participate, we will be collecting unwrapped gifts for the Salvation Army “Forgotten Angel Program.”  If you can’t make it to the Christmas Dinner you can bring your gift to the November club meeting this Thursday, November 19th at 7:00 p.m.  Please see below for more information on the age groups in need as well as gift suggestions provided by Salvation Army.

 

Reminder:  2016 Officer Elections will be this Thursday!

The Salvation Army – Forgotten Angel’s program was created to ensure that no child in need in Middle Tennessee is overlooked during the Christmas season.  This program help fills the gap for those children who were unable to register in time (Oct 30) for the Angel Tree program and who are in need this Christmas.

So many children right here in our community go without basic needs and do not experience the magic of Christmastime that we often take for granted. Nashville Amateur Radio Club members can help our community by donating unwrapped gifts to the Forgotten Angels program. Those children who needs are especially great are ages 10 and above and suggested items include: sporting equipment, clothes (size 8 and above), youth books, MP3 players.
