After extending greetings to those gathered in Pahrump, NV Ed invited Joe AF1E to demonstrate making payment of dues through the PayPal system. Having an accurate count of dues paid members will be vital to the ROAR reset by RI.
In addition to the sharing of Rotary activities and AR opportunities there were interesting historical remembering of radio tubes, tube testers and related equipment.
Reports of storm damage to properties in Florida were also shared, as were health and welfare reports and, sadly, the loss of dear friends.
