This was sent to me by an old high school friend and I felt it was worth sharing as many of us fall into this category.

I received this wonderful letter a few days ago and felt that it should be shared with the entire membership and anyone else who visit this site!  After all, it is about you, our members, who have demonstrated this “spirit of our hobby” to all those we are in contact with on a daily basis.  I, personally, am so proud be a part of this AWSOME organization! 

As Founder/President, I would like to thank each of you for helping making this club what it has become.

Hey Jim,

I just wanted to drop you a line to let you know that I had a fantastic time today at the picnic.  The event was a huge success and I'm already looking forward to another one next year.

Also, I wanted to let you know how much I appreciate being a part of Village Seven Amateur Radio Club (V7ARC).  Becoming an amateur radio operator has had a huge impact on my life, something that I would have never thought would happen.   I certainly never imagined that it would change me the way that it has.   In V7ARC, I have something that I've never had in my entire life; a group of like-minded people who have accepted me in to their fold without question or reservation, and who have common interests with a free flow of ideas and experience.   The generosity and kindness I have experienced from everyone has been overwhelming.

Thank you.

Our Vice President, Ray received this "Hillbilly Plug Bar" for his attitude of always being ready to go help a fellow HAM when needed.

These ladies are another very important facet of our Club - our Spouses, 1 of whom is licensed (Carol KC0HPS).

These are the majority of our V7ARC Club Members.  Sorry Bill and Jim, it appears I missed all but your arms.  I will try and do better next time or have someone else shot it.

Since the club has no treasury, we will accept donations toward maintaining the web site.  Please keep in mind that we are not asking for donations and under no circumstances is it required but would be appreciated.

Thank You for your generosity.

All donation will be used to support the web site and club activities in the coming year.
