Upcoming Public Service Events

By Rob N9MVO

So far, we have two Public Service Events on the schedule, this year and it would be nice to get them on the calendar, as well.

MS Walk

Sunday, May 7th at 7:30 AM we will meet at Harper college (details forthcoming) for the MS Walk in Palatine. The walk is scheduled to start at 10:00 AM, but the road around the campus gets closed off earlier for the safety of the participants. The Walk should finish before noon. We need radio operators to man stations along the route to assist participants who may not be able to finish the walk. See the email to SARC members.

Hoffman Estates Independence Day Parade

On Saturday, July 1st, we will be supporting the Hoffman Estates Independence Day Parade on Illinois Blvd. between Schaumburg Road and somewhere west of Roselle Road. We need radio operators to walk the streets west of Illinois Blvd. to organize the parade units for that event.

We will meet for the briefing at 7:30 at the intersection of Illinois and Paris Lane. See the email in SARC-All for additional details.
