On Saturday, April 22, 2006 the Scarborough Amateur Radio Club celebrated its 60th Anniversary. Thanks to Joe Ditta VA3JDX for sending the photos.
The meeting opened at 7:45 p.m. held at the Club Meeting Room, with Vice-President Audrey, VA3YD in the Chair.
After a few brief announcements, Audrey welcomed all to the 59th Annual Anniversary and Awards Evening.
I would like to thank all the volunteers who assisted with the MS Walk communications, Sunday 17th April. It was a fine day when many could be enjoying time with their families; but, chose to help out in a worthwhile cause. As radio amateurs we always learn something from these kinds of exercises. We learn how to deal with the unexpected. We learn more about our own equipment. We get input from the officials we work with. We learn also how to work with each other.
The meeting was well attended with 20 club members present, we were pleased to see Charlie VE3EHD out to the meeting from the Toronto ARES Group....Charlie informs us that he will be joining our ranks at the next meeting....welcome Charlie it will be nice to have you with the Scarborough Club.
The focus of the earlier part of the meeting was the final signing of the club bylaws by the executive. Copies of the club bylaws will be kept by the executive and a copy in the club safety deposit box along with a backup floppy disk.
The Corporate Annual General Meeting of the Scarborough Amateur Radio Club took place on January 10th, 2005 in the Seniors Lounge, The Mid-Scarborough Recreation Centre, 2467 Eglinton Ave. East.
