Friday, December 13 – W5ES Christmas Party, Pot Luck Dinner, Gift Exchange, and Food Drive – 6 PM at the El Paso Amateur Radio Club, 2100 San Diego, El Paso, TX. Don’t make gifts very expensive - a man should bring a gift for a man and a woman should bring one for a woman. The same thing holds true for a child. We will have a few extra gifts on hand so you shouldn’t get your own gift back. We are also collecting non-perishable food items to give to the El Paso Rescue Mission so please help make Christmas happier for others. Bring your favorite spouse, potluck dish, gift, and non-perishable food contribution.
14 - No Host Amateur Breakfast – 8 AM at the Tejas Cafe, 9757 Dyer St, El Paso,
Friday, December 20 - K5WPH Annual Christmas Party – 6 PM at the Sun City Amateur Radio Club, 3709 Wickham Ave, El Paso, Texas.
