Lew Sieber: NFS Fire Shop Manager

We are honored to have Lew Sieber, Nebraska Forest Service Fire Shop manager, as our first presenter of the year. In this role, Lew provides an interesting service to volunteer fire departments, state and local government leaders, and Nebraska’s citizens. Most people do not realize how this benefits Nebraskans.

We are planning for the meeting to be at Northern Lighthouse Church on February 10, assuming Lancaster county COVID-19 levels stay in the orange. Masks and physical distancing are required, and sanitizer will be available. Family members who reside under the same roof may sit together. A Zoom link (bit.ly/LARCFeb21) is available for those who do not yet feel comfortable attending in-person gatherings.

2021 Club Dues

The LARC Board has reduced Full Membership dues to $15/year beginning with 2021. If you have already paid $20 for your 2021 membership please email treasurer@k0kkv.org with your choice of the following options: receive a $5 refund, receive credit towards your 2022 membership, or donate to a LARC activity/fund of your choice.

The membership form has been updated to reflect the changes. If you haven’t renewed, now is a great time.

Thank you for your continued support of the Lincoln Amateur Radio Club.

ISO Your Great Ideas!

Happy New Year, hopefully. I’m sure you’ll agree that 2020 was a year not worth repeating. The LARC Board appreciates each member’s continued participation during the pandemic.

We will not have a formal program during the January 13 meeting. Instead, LARC president Ed Holloway, KØRPT, and I will lead a discussion about ways the club can plan social events and functions within the county’s current DHMs.

What topics or presenters do you want to be featured at the 10 remaining meetings, February through November of 2021?

Creative ideas that provide socialization while keeping everyone safe will be welcomed during this discussion.
