The 2018 Antietam Radio Association annual Christmas dinner was held on Saturday, December 15th at the Western Sizzlin' Restaurant in Hagerstown, MD. There were approximately 48 members and guests in attendance during the event, who had their pick of al a carte items, their famous buffet, or both. I, particularly, looked forward to, and later devoured my 24 ounce "Cowboy Cut" T-Bone. Yum!
Before introducing Marty Pittinger (MDC Section Manager), President Bob Long (KD3JK) requested a moment of silence as we recognized several hams who became Silent Keys during 2018. Marty talked to us about his time during and after hurricanes Maria and Harvey (Summer/Fall 2017), and what we can do to ensure that we are as prepared as possible to assist our own communities when disaster strikes our own regions.

We will meet once again this year at the Western Sizzlin' Steakhouse for some good food and fellowship (see details below). Spouses and guests are welcome. We expect to have a guest speaker as well, which will be announced closer to the date.
