The September 24 meeting will be online using Webex. We will be drawing for the prizes for the “Donation Extravaganza” and Carrie K7CAC will be presenting “Keeping cool during an emergency.” A link to the Webex meeting will be sent the week of the meeting.

The annual MCARES Donation Extravaganza has launched and so far many of you have donated for a chance to win some really great prizes. The ticket sales have been beyond our expectations and we cannot thank our members enough for their faithful support.

As if COVID-19 were not enough to worry about, now we are buried in a thick layer of smoke from the wildfires. Our hearts go out to the many fellow Oregonians who have lost their homes or have been evacuated out of harm’s way.

The next exercise is the Red, White, and Blue Chip Trip on Saturday September 19. We are watching the weather and smoke situation carefully to make sure this can be a safe outdoor exercise. We will let everyone know if there is a need to postpone until a later date.

Saturday October 3 is the Fall statewide ARES SET (Simulated Emergency Test). The drill writing team is busy working on details. Please save the date!
