NOARC Receives Appreciation from City of Crestview

On Monday, October 21, 2019, the Mayor and Crestview City Council wanted to extend appreciation to the clubs and organizations in the city for their work. NOARC was invited to attend the modified City Council meeting, where approximately thirty organizations gave two-minute talks on their organization.

Bruce Adams spoke for our club. He mentioned the FCC mandate of being “a voluntary non-commercial radio service, with emphasis on emergency communications”; that the club is 41 years old this month; and also mentioned some of the public service work that is provided in the city and county.

Flyers were available for those interested in more information, plus the club’s website was delivered in the presentation. Again, NOARC thanks the Mayor and the City for the recognition.
