EDCARC and NRW support Mosquito Finnon Lake Harvest Festival!


At last weekend's Finnon Lake Harvest Festival, in Mosquito.  JR is doing his usual great job.  That's Tom (K6TFB) sitting behind him.  Also roaming around was Reese (AJ6YA), Andrea (W6TDA), Karen, Tom's wife, and Tom, Marilyn, and Linda, from the Neighborhood Radio Watch.  We saw Ken, W6KWV, and several other hams out there.

Great pulled pork sandwiches, chips and drinks were provided to all attendees by the organizer.  A fun event and great PR for both the radio club and the Neighborhood Radio Watch.
