Members of the Blackstone Valley ARC in Woonsocket, Rhode Island, participated in a “business expo” at the Bellingham, MA library on April 29, 2023.
“We set up an HF station and club president, Ken [Trudel], N1RGK, presented an overview of what Amateur radio is all about,” reports BVARC founding member and Rhode Island Section Manager Bob Beaudet, W1YRC. “We had handouts from ARRL and our club brochure. We picked up several new members and several non-hams who showed interest in getting a ticket.”
Beaudet explained that a club member is a friend of the library director. “She had us do a similar event before COVID and wants us back any time we can do it again.”
W1YRC presented the library with the ARRL Handbook six-volume set.
