The next club meeting will be Saturday, December 13 and it’s a special one. We will have a ham radio white elephant gift exchange. This is totally optional but those that want to can bring a ham radio related item (value less than $10 and must be working). We’ll have a fast and furious exchange of items. It was lots of fun last year. New hams and visitors can just sit back and enjoy the fun.
A special invitation goes out to the new hams that just passed the exam in November!
It all begins Saturday, December 13 at 9 AM.  Come early for a great breakfast buffet at the Mabank Café on Hwy 198 in Mabank.
The Cedar Creek ARC  meets every month on the second Saturday at Mabank Café.  You do not need to be a member or ham operator to attend.
ARES The Henderson County Amateur Radio Emergency Service net will meet this Tuesday, 12/9, at 8 p.m on the CCARC repeater.
You do not need to be a member to check in, and we invite all area hams to join. Our new hams are cordially invited to check in.
And a reminder that the North TX ARES net is also this week, the second Wednesday, at 8:30 p.m. on 3.860 MHz.
