Two pieces of news

First off, Doug Mullins (KB9JLR) is now an AEC and the liaison between Vigo County ARES and the Wabash Valley Chapter of the American Red Cross. Doug has had a good deal of experience with the Red Cross while he lived in Indianapolis and has many certifications. This will be great for both groups to have him on and hopefully this will help some of us learn more about the services the WVCotARC has to offer, who knows....maybe you will want to volunteer some of you time with them too?

The other item, as many of you know, my wife an I are expecting our first child at the end of next month. I have been extremely busy as anyone would expect, getting things prepared for the event. Jerry Boling (W9TWR) will be taking over as EC for Vigo County and I will continue to be the liaison to the Vigo County EMA and help out with the blogspot page.

Jerry has a ton of ideas for activities that will get the group active and will have more time to devote to Vigo County ARES than I will for a while. I will be around, might have a bottle in my hand instead of a mic for a while though.

73 to all,
de WT9I
