 At the MARC monthly club meeting we got to see the three new banners that were donated to the Muscatine County ARES team by River City Promotions. Was a little disappointed to see that they didn't have grommets in them, but I guess we can add them at a later time if they are needed. If anyone has any ideas on how to raise money for the ARES team, please let me know.  de Scott - NØMRZ, 73s
