LeeCARES Monthly Meeting August 15, 2021
After a short business meeting, Lee CARES members discussed about the status of the grants and insurance quotes for the van. Different possibilities for go-kits and radios were also considered. And resignation from director and original member Ken Malgren due to his imminent departure from Texas were reluctantly accepted. The Outreach committee informed the members that Lee Co ARES is to make a presentation at the Rotary Club of Giddings in September. We had guest speaker, RACES Radio Officer for District 12 and Region 9 Patrick Rogers W5DVG who gave a presentation on RACES structure; he also illustrated the relationship and role RACES would play with the County. He invited ARES members to join RACES to better serve the County in case County resources became insufficient in an emergency or disaster and request of support to the State became necessary.
