The next meeting will be on December 10th, 2018.

The December PARC meeting will depart from the normal format with an opportunity 
to talk with and get to know your associate PARC members.

The centerpiece at this meeting will be a pot luck dinner.
· If your call suffix begins with A through I, bring a main course item. · If your call suffix begins with J through Q bring a salad (includes those without lettuce). · If your call suffix begins with R through Z, bring a side dish, or dessert.
Feel free to bring more than one item. Water and beverages will be provided, bring what you want if you wish. Friends, significant others, and kids are Welcome. Our meeting facility requests that we remove all garbage and we will have small garbage bags available at the meeting. As usual there will be an opportunity to show and tell about projects you are working on. Feel free to bring display items or video format photos for display. We will also have a short presentation for the good of the order. We're also interested in programs. If you have a program, know of one, or have an interest in a subject that would make a good program please let us know at w7lt@arrl.net .
The meeting has been moved to a new location and date - come join us on the second Monday of every month at 4415 NE 87th Ave, just behind the fire station at 87th and Sandy. Meeting starts at 7:00pm.
