Mark your calendars: HLARC is combining the November and December meetings to December 2nd.   Members decided that we will gather at the Highlander Restaurant at 401 Buchanan Drive in Burnet to partake of their excellent buffet. The Club will pick up the tab for members and spouses. Please note that we will need to be there at 5 p.m. That is the weekend of Main Street Bethlehem in Burnet and the restaurant said that because of the expected crowd they could not seat us at our regular meetimg time.  Hope to see everyone on December 2 at 5 p.m. at the Highlander Restaurant.

End of year Schedule

November - No meeting due to holidays

December - DIFFERENT DATE, TIME, PLACE on December 2nd at 5 pm, with meal provided by the club, see above. Remember, officer elections for next year will be held at the December party/meeting. Get your ideas together. You could do it, someone you know could do it. You must have their permission to submit a someones name for the election.

Reminder: Regular scheduled meetings are the last Friday (not the 4th Friday) and start at 6:30 pm.

Most months, an ARES meeting is just before the HLARC meeting. On the first month of every

quarter, a pot luck covered dish dinner takes the place of the ARES meeting.

The September meeting invited the general public. It was held at the Westside Park Community Center.

The topic was the American Red Cross, it's services and how to volunteer.

There was a notice in the paper, and few members of the public joined the ham members for this meeting.
