On December thirteenth the W8LRC radio club participated and volunteered in the Flat River Outreach Ministry Christmas drive. The club volunteered as parking management and assisted other volunteers and patrons with the loading and unloading of vehicles. We also had some help from the Saranac area Boy Scouts. With the participants that volunteered from the club and the Boy Scouts we kept the parking lot free flowing and organized. This event is held every year to help families from the local area that cannot afford gifts for their children. It was a festive atmosphere and the joy and grateful looks were a site to see. This year’s event was a very good start to the Holiday season. The club would like to thank everyone who came out and volunteered for the event and wish everyone a happy Holidays!
