Want to help out with the shingling party sometime in April? No skills necessary. Need grounds crew, moral support and gophers. Of course if you know how to handle a hammer, all the better! Give K1JGV a shout on 147.000 or drop by the club and sign up on the white board.
It is with deep regret and sadness to report the passing of long time SEMARA member, KD1DA, a dependable VE and very active in New Bedford Emergency Management. Chuck was a regular SEMARA meeting attendee and will be missed by all.
