Come PICNIC with LEARA at the
Harriet Keeler Memorial Picnic Area
This year's July club picnic will be at the location we used in Brecksville for the first time last year. The plan is to use the Harriet Keeler Memorial Picnic Area, or if that's taken, one of the other areas nearby (Call on 146.52/S or listen on a club repeater for any possible change.)
All food and beverages will be provided for $8.50 per person,(youth under 13 free) payable to Marv, W8AZO, as you arrive. Carl, KB8VXE, is now assembling a bountiful array of picnic "eats & supplies," and Jim, N8XDO, will be at the grill by 6:30 pm Tuesday evening to fulfill your order.
Mike, K8EHP, will have "planted" a fox or two (hidden transmitter) nearby, so you can hunt too! Bring your foxhunting equipment or help get a potential new ham interested by sharing it with a young person for fun.
To register for the picnic, you may let us know how many are in your party through the dinner reservation page at leara.org as usual, or you may telephone president, Gary Zimmet, WA8TJL, at home at 440-446-0402 and leave your reservation information with Gary or Janet.
The annual club picnic gives us a good chance to catch up with friends and field day results, or discuss candidates for the October board election.
See you in Brecksville on July 29th!

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 of Northeast Ohio. The club call signs are WB8CQR and WR8ABC, and the club is an official ARRL affiliated club. Welcome to our site! Please explore the links to the left and don't forget to 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.
