ARES Christmas gathering and monthly meeting

Tonight was my first ARES Christmas gathering. It was a wonderful night of great food and fun fellowship. Thank you to everyone who brought covered dishes and desserts. I think I ate enough to last a few days! I am enjoying this new ham radio hobby and being a part of a wonderful new family.  73 & God bless, KM4LWL
