The Norwood Amateur Radio Club assisted the Town of Norwood with its annual Festival of Lights celebration on November 30, 2008. Amateurs helped in providing radio communications, hay-ride escort, and most importantly–synchronized tree lighting.
The communications effort was a joint endeavor with the Commonwealth REACT team. According to newsletter editor Barry Devine, K1BPD, “Many of the REACT members are also licensed hams, and several are members of NARC.”
Despite inclement weather, everyone enjoyed the festivities. “We all received a big thank you from Bernie Cooper for helping to make the 2008 Festival of Lights a resounding success.”
