VOL. 10, #1

January, 2001


January Meeting 

The next SFARC meeting will be held on Wednesday, January 31 at Sillivan’s Restaurant (Highway 36 between Bellville and Kenney).    Dinner will be at 6:30 PM, with business meeting to follow. 


November/December 2000 Meeting

No SFARC business meetings were held in November/December.  On the other hand, Club members enjoyed a great Christmas dinner and visit at Dave K5KX and Joy’s house.  The attendees were Dave (K5KX) and XYL Joy, of course, Carl Hickman (K5OWC) and XYL DeAnn, Dan (W5AOV) and XYL Linda White, and Wade Eilers (W5TEN).


The Club received a thank-you letter and gift certificate for $75 worth of dinners at Sillavan’s Restaurant for its assistance in the “2000 Crossroads Classic” bike ride from Tom Martin of the Sealy Lions Club.  Tom hopes we, W5SFA, will assist again with the communications next year.
