New updates/additions to the website!

Hello, everyone!

KEØLMY here!

February has already been a busy month. Since it’s the shortest, we’re working hard to bring you new and updated information and more resources in a shorter amount of time!

So far this month, the EC Blog has been updated, we’ve added a new table to our Nets tab for easier reading, we’ve added our new Welcome Packet letter to the About ARES tab, we’ve also added a new banner to thank KDØCNC to the About ARES tab, we’ve added the ARRLs Quickstart Guide for Ham Radio operators under the Quick Reference Guide, and finally, we’ve created a new Benton County, MO ARES frame for anyone to use on our FB page!

We are looking into new layouts and banners for the website for 2018. We hope to keep things moving in a forward direction this year by providing quality content and engaging our members and prospective members in fun and exciting activities. The BC ARES already has a future plan to coordinate with the WAARCI for Summer Field Days!

I will be posting the agenda for the February meeting shortly. Our meeting is this coming Saturday at 9 AM at the Benton County 911 building behind the water tower in Warsaw! We would love to see you there!
