The Sturdy Memorial Hospital received a plaque from ARRL commemorating 25 years of ARRL affiliation this week.
Presenting on behalf of the ARRL was Eastern Massachusetts Affiliated Club Coordinator Frank Murphy, N1DHW. John Benson, N1FLO, SMHARC President, accepted the award.
The Sturdy Memorial Hospital ARC also celebrates its 25th anniversity as a radio club this year. It was formed in the aftermath of the devastating “Blizzard of ’78.”
“Clubs play in integral role in the health and vibrancy of our hobby,” said Phil Temples, K9HI, Eastern Massachusetts ARRL Section Manager.
Temples added, “The Sturdy Memorial Hospital ARC has distinguished itself time and time again as one of the premiere clubs in this section through its public service, its outstanding publicity of our hobby-service to the community, and its continuing affiliation with our national Amateur Radio organization.”
