Message from our President

Hello to you all. Summer is over and now fall is in the air. It's been a hot summer and very little rain in the PNW. I'm from SW WA and it's been very dry for a very long time. So now we have fire danger, but so far things aren't too bad. We all hope it stays that way. We all so appreciate our firefighters and the hard work they do keeping us safe. But we do like them not having to do too much work.
It's been a busy time for me. I had one daughter get married June 25 and another one is getting married Sept 25. So it's been a really busy year. But a fun one too. Honestly I'll be glad when Sept 27 comes and I can relax. I'll be going to San Francisco the beginning of Oct for a week. I'm really looking forward to it seeing it's my favorite city to go to. I'll get to see all the places I haven't seen in quite a few years. We used to go there every few years but it's been a while now since I've been there.
Those of us that were able to come to Vancovuer WA for lunch met for a few fun hours at Peachtree Restaurant. It was a good time with sharing what each of us has been doing over the last year. We had some great food too. It's like Covid has just ended and we got to spend time together without worrying. We'll do another lunch next Sept 2023.
We've had some good nets going for a long time now with our ever faithful Margaret, AE7MB as net control operator. Margaret has been hosting the Echolink net on Thurs nights and the HF net on 20 m on Fri mornings for a long time. Thank you Margaret for a job well done. Your faithfulness has been noticed and we all appreciate it. You're a great net control operator.
Oct 18 from 1-3 we'll be having another MINOW zoom meeting. The last ones were successful and those of you able to get on enjoyed getting to know each other. I enjoyed meeting some of you that I haven't met too. Try and get on and join us. You'll be getting a link in an email before the date. And once one comes out we'll also post it here. I try and do a few zoom gatherings a year, along with our yearly meeting. It's a way to put faces to our names.
We all hope you had a good and productive summer and are getting ready for fall and the holidays. Enjoy the end of 2022 and we'll all look forward to 2023 and what that year brings.
33 to your all,
Marilyn (Emma), AF7MM
