Lifetime Achievement Award Delivered to Buddy Preuss

03 Sep 2021 3:12 PM | Kelita Alberts (Administrator)

The heat and humidity are really starting to get old. The DOG DAYS as we call them are beginning to wear on the nerves. Standing outside for more than a few minutes will make the sweat start rolling...

But I see some random raindrops and that gives me hope. 

This week was full of great excitement because we were able to finally start giving out our Chamber Awards that had not been delivered in time for the banquet. It was actually more fun to be able to go visit award recipients and remind them of their wonderful accomplishments.


It was so fun to deliver the Lifetime Achievement Award to Buddy Preuss at his office with Louise, Sam, and Sloan by his side. It makes me smile to be able to deliver such a memorable gift. Thanks to Frank Smith for coming by and taking this wonderful picture for us. 

Yesterday the Lee County Amateur Radio Emergency Services team came to speak at the Rotary Club about their emergency radio volunteer organization. Marida del Favia Core Borromeo was the speaker for their new 501C group. This is a great organization and they would love to come to do a program for you at your civic group, church, or youth organization. The ham radio has been around for a long time and it has been in the hobby industry for many years. It has recently become an Emergency Management tool and is very interesting to learn about the different levels of amateur radio communications that are out there... breaker breaker 19! Do you copy?

September is going to be super busy. It is going to be exciting to see what the next few months will be since we are seeing this huge uptick in activities... Stay tuned.
