SARA This Week: May 10 – May 16

SARA’s on-air activities continue to be a great way with others and check on their wellness as well as a boost of your own overall wellness. Those on-air activities provide healthy social contact while maintaining personal distancing.
A Field Day planning session is on the schedule for this Wednesday May 13 via our Webex video conference room. Field Day will have a different look and feel this year, as we are planning that we will not be gathering as a club at Autumn Hills Park due to the many concerns surrounding COVID-19. As such, we do have plans to encourage individuals to grasp the true meaning of Field Day by operating on their own, while presenting opportunities for friendly competition with each other within the club. We’re also looking at some inter-club challenges with some of our neighboring clubs. Join us at 7:30 PM Thursday evening to learn more and help lay the groundwork for SARA’s “distributed” Field Day.
Webex meeting details for both virtual gatherings will be sent to SARA members in the next day or so. They will be under a different name as we transition to an official SARA Webex room.
