ARA Monthly Breakfast


Covid-19 update! The ARA missed all of the breakfasts from March through July: Bob, KD3JK, worked with our regular venue, Railroad Junction, to ensure that we were welcome back as soon as they were ready. The first breakfast was held in August. The September breakfast is scheduled for this (September 26, 2020) about 9A.
