The August 27th meeting will be online using Webex. Adam will be hosting a Field Station Video Webinar showing and talking about various field station setups. A link to Webex will be sent the week of the meeting.

The annual MCARES Raffle Donation extravaganza has launched and so far many of you have donated for a chance to win some really great prizes. This fundraising will help us outfit the newest trailer addition. The “Spartan” will be a much more modest build than the other MCARES mobile communications trailer – as fancy but just as capable! Your donations are very much appreciated by the leadership team.

The July mobile exercise, GPS Food drive-drive, was so much fun! We had 35 members participate and 314 items of food donated to the Snow Cap charities food pantry. Snow Cap was very appreciative and asked that we relay the message to all of our members. Look for pictures in this newsletter. Thanks to everyone who helped make this event such a success.

The next exercise will also be mobile; stay tuned for more details about the September 19 (tentative date) event.
