The BC Enterprise ran Kelly’s story!

Hello, everyone!

KEØLMY here!

As promised, the Benton County Enterprise ran our article on Kelly Stanfield’s surprise! They used most of the article written and posted on our website with a few rewordings.

A huge thank you to Jim McNally (KA0DXU) and Richard Wade (KD0CNC) for spearheading such a heartwarming surprise for such a great ham!

Make sure you pick up a copy of this week’s Enterprise so you can read the full article!

A special thank you also goes out to Rick Harkins (WØYGH) for the great pictures he took during the December meeting, one of which was used for the Enterprise’s story!
