Our meetings will start on September 30th, 6:30PM at the Cambria Fire hall, Business as usual and masks are required. We will not be VE testing at this meeting, but we will have VE testing the rest of our fiscal year. We also have plenty of room to social distance. Looking forward to seeing everyone once again!

         NOTE: Sept is the beginning of our fiscal year and, as usual, we will be collecting the annual dues for 20-21. Application form is attached.

With COVID 19 Cases continuing to decline, it’s time to start looking forward and getting back to the normal routine. Keep in mind, our schools are starting to gear up and there could be a change in plans as we move forward. LARA is prepared to hold virtual meetings in case of any unforeseeable changes. Please keep checking your emails and checking in on the Sunday night nets for further updates.

I would like to start by thanking all of the net controllers who participated in our “HEALTH AND SAFETY NET” during the peak COVID 19. Your dedication to the cause was unwavering and we have been blessed in our community to have Amateur Radio operators who are leaders and not afraid to “take on” COVID 19 to help others in the time of need! THANK YOU AGAIN FOR ALL OF YOUR EFFORTS!

COVID 19 did not hinder LARA at all. As a matter of fact, it has made us stronger than ever!  We had a record breaking number of people attending our testing sessions. We were also one of the only clubs who did not cancel FIELD DAYS. We have to thank our chairmen for spearheading these activities. Thank you: Bob Neufeld (N3AU); Tony Thornton (KN1M); Mike Harrington (KC2VUB); and Duane Robinson (W2DLR). Keep up the good work!

    As we all know, we are facing very trying times. There have been many changes in the last couple of days, even in the last couple of hours. As I type this email, we now have a case of COVID-19 in Niagara County. Our local businesses have felt the economic blows along with the rest of the United States, even globally!  With this pandemic looming over us, we have decided to cancel the L.A.R.A. March meeting. We will also be postponing our testing until further notice. Please check your emails or our web site for further information regarding our future meetings and testing sessions. Let's help " flatten the curve" as they say, by practicing social distancing. (and playing solitaire on our computers)
