Celebrate the Holidays with
LEARA November 25th at
Massimo da Milano
It is time to celebrate the holiday season with food, fun, and bingo.
The last Tuesday in November, the 25th, will be the evening of our annual holiday party. We will gather at Massimo Da Milano's restaurant, for an evening of food, frivolity, and friendship. There will be great door prizes, three rounds of bingo, delicious food, and a cash bar.
There are multiple ways to emerge a winner at this year's event! Jim, N8XDO, will be on hand to offer the usual 50-50 drawing option. Each bingo game winner will receive a "LEARA buck" for a free dinner at an upcoming meeting (even if there are multiple winners). This year the lucky door prize winners will each go home with a new Baofeng UV5R dual band handheld transceiver, complete with charger.
The holiday party is $20 a person and includes tax and tip. The meal will be a full Italian Buffet with beef, chicken and pasta options, including soft drinks & coffee. Adult beverages can be purchased in the restaurant.
Reservations are due by 2:00 PM on Friday, November 21, 2014. The ample buffet will not require stating advance menu selections, only the number of persons coming for dinner. Reservations can be made on the club website, www.leara.org or by calling Marv Grossman at 440-248-0031.
Massimo Da Milano's is located at 1400 West 25th Street in Cleveland, on the southwest corner of West 25th and Detroit, just beyond the west end of the Detroit-Superior bridge. Parking is available south of the restaurant and nearby on the north side of Detroit. For more information see their website: http://www.massimos.net/.
Remember that there is no December club meeting. See you Tuesday, November 25, ready to party!

On May 27, 1969, the last Tuesday of that month, a group of Hams interested in repeaters who had been meeting informally for some time decided to form a new Amateur Radio club - The Lake Erie Amateur Radio Association. Someone mentioned that this new club would need a leader and Bill Hess, K8SGX, volunteered and became LEARA's first President. And thus was born what would become the largest Amateur Radio club in the greater Cleveland area!
For over 40 years LEARA has been providing public service and emergency communications for Northeast Ohio. The club call signs are WB8CQR and WR8ABC. We are an official ARRL affiliated club.
Welcome to our site! Please explore the links to the left and please join us at one of our meetings!
Any and all hams are encouraged to attend our monthly meeting; you do not have to be a member of the club. Non-hams seeking guidance in becoming a ham radio operator are also encouraged to attend.
Items in red are LEARA club events, green are hamfests, and gray are holidays.
