Huge thanks to Steve, K7KO and Rick, WA7NWN for taking on the colossal task of mowing the LCARA lawns 🙏.

Reminder to members that maintaining the grounds on the property is essential to the club remaining at our site, if we do nothing else, we must mow the lawn. If you’re unable to pitch in yourself, please consider donating to support the effort (club dues barely cover electricity, water, internet, and insurance).
