The November & December SWARC Business Meetings
are being moved:
To ALL SWARC Members,
Since we will not have the Weirton County Road Fire Station available for our November and December meetings we will be meeting at a different location for the near future:
Paul Rebres, WW9PR, has secured a meeting room at the Riverview Methodist Church in Toronto, Ohio. The church is located at 105 N. River Avenue, Toronto, Oh 43964. Enter on the River Avenue side of the church in the door marked "Church Office," go up the stairs and down the hall, and enter in the 3rd door on the left. This is their conference room. The entry to the church should be open at 6:30 PM. Our meeting room is available from 7:00 PM until 9:00 PM. There is street parking as well as a parking lot to the south side of the church.
I will post this information on the www.swarc.net website and as an email on the OVHams site.
Greg – N8GD
