Ham Radio, Barbecue and a special ceremony…what’s not to love?

Monday night was the Lakeland Amateur Radio Club December meeting, Christmas Party and Barbecue dinner. 48 fine folks came out for a great dinner catered by Mission BBQ (big thanks to Dave Zdanowicz, KI4WRX for always feeding us so well) and as always a good time was had.

The highlight of the night was conferring a Lifetime Membership in the Lakeland Amateur Radio Club to Jim Scott, KG4PWF. Jim is a long-time member of LARC and is a US Navy veteran. Jim is currently living in Winter Haven in an assisted living facility and is not able to get out and join us for club meetings, so thanks to Zoom we took the meeting to him. We thank you for your service, Jim and are proud to have you as a member.
