Meeting called to order  at 6:30pm by Dick WB4HXF with introduction of members and guests
The program was presented by Bob KE4JLL with some interesting videos on The Story of Ham Radio and the Year in Review.  It was interesting to see how radio has changed over the years and remember earlier faces and voices.  Thank you.

Treasurer:  $136.89
 Records were transferred to the new treasurer.  Dr. Joe Tiller was remembered for his many years of faithful service to the club.  He is missed.
