President's Message June 2014

Hello Summer. Goodbye Friends.

As we end the month of June, it has been a terrible month for WACOM...we lost two of US. Hard to believe that Fay, KA3VOM and Denny, K8DKS are gone.

For quite a while I have known of the MANY contributions made by Fay to WACOM. VOM was about as active a member as possible. She attended ALL the meetings, ran our 10 meter net, also ran the YL net on the repeater. She was a major player at the Hamfest, (how does one spell PIES). Fay was a special lady. And that was only her radio activities. Her WACOM activity was exceeded, hard to believe, by her church contributions. We already miss ya.

Then Denny K8DKS. I thought I knew a bit about Denny, but I knew little until we went to his service to see Debbie KD8KAC. DKS was another individual that let no grass grow under his feet. The assemblage of photos depicted many different aspects of his life. Family & Family and then country music and more. He was not just "into" country, he was IN it...playing & enjoying the friendships with some very famous Country names.

There are so many different aspects of our WACOM members, as we are quite the diverse group. Our WACOM consists of us, nothing more.
