President's Message

Hello May

Yes, May already.  We had snow the other day which is now almost gone. I have 2 - 250 gallon tanks under my eaves-trough spouts and one is filled and the other is 3/4 filled and that is just the run off of the roof.  So glad that the South-West Saskatchewan got a bit of moisture.  I know that Ontario, along the Ottawa River are really not happy with all the flooding, and neither is Quebec and New Brunswick.  CLARA joins with the rest of Canada with prayers for everyone's safety. 

Helen, VA1YL just sent me the list of the winners for this year's Chatter Party and I am so pleased to see that we had 11 participants.   Glad you were able to get on the air.  I unfortunately could not get on for a number of reasons, one of them being antenna problems.  Oh well maybe now that May is here, the OM and I can get the antenna fixed. 

Over the summer, I hopefully will be able to start updating the CLARA website.  Like any good woman, we agree that a change once in a while is a good thing.  Please be patient as it will take a while, as like most of you, house repairs and yard-work are a summer time thing, and we must do those chores first.  So in my spare time I will work on changing things. 

That's it for this time around, hope everyone is doing fine and keeping healthy. 

33, 88. 73 as the case may be.
Val Lemko, VE5ACJ

It has come to our attention that many folks who need to send in a change of address or articles to share and don't know where to send it. So please go to the Contact Us page, and you will find your area reps along with their email address.
