 "Action may not always bring happiness; but there is no happiness without action. "

Benjamin Disraeli




President's Message

May sneaked up on me, probably because one week is is +17C and above and the next week we are down to +4C.  Oh well, such is life

I did spend a lot of time in April moving and removing some of my perennial and have noticed that they are all starting to come up, so I must have done something right.

We have created a new CLARA badge, and are just waiting for a quote on how much it is going to cost to get X number made.  These of course are going to be for the Birthday Bash in July  2017. We are also looking at doing aprons, the ones with the bib, I like big aprons, and this will have our CLARA logo on it.   So if you love baking or know someone who does, these would make great gifts. Don't know the price yet either.

Flea-markets and ham-fests will be starting soon and I hope you will advertise CLARA to all.  We will be sending out some recruitment posters soon to our reps. We really need to get more information out to the public.  There are a lot of girls who are amateur radio ops, and these are the ones we would like to have as members. So if you know of new YLs or some other YL's please introduce them to CLARA, we really do need more members to help give us a new lease on life so to speak. We really would like CLARA to last for another 50 years.

So that's it for now, hope you are able to get out and enjoy the spring without winter jackets and boots. Take care.

33, 73, & 88 as the case may be
