 Don't wait for the perfect moment, take the moment and make it perfect.  



Please keep Joan VE5TAW in your thoughts and prayers.  Joan is doing much better and it looks like that she is going to be able to keep her toes.

Elizabeth VE7YL received a letter dated July 1st saying that the Drs. are very pleased with her progress so no new tests until Sept. Friends have been taking her to some of the groups that she is interested in and she mentioned a geologist who gave a talk and showed pictures of Iceland. They have had record warm temperatures in W. Australia and this is their winter. Lawn sprinkling has been banned. (Sounds like Vancouver). She is not back to using her computer - she says they are both old and very slow! Will pass on news when I get more. Please keep your get well cards and notes moving across the Pacific to her

It has come to our attention that many folks who need to send in a change of address or articles to share and don't know where to send it.

Please forgive us for this oversight, Also, under QSL & Contests, please find our Net Frequencies and time. Note that all our CLARA nets run from September to the end of May.

President's Message
