~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

In the year 2016 at a Members Monthly meeting, the members were polled as to what they felt were the priorities of the LARC and what activities they wanted the club to engage. Since then, the Club and its members have been working to complete items on that list.

This link LARC Priorities, shows a PDF file illustrating the activities completed, which ones are currently being worked on and what is has yet to be accomplished. This list willl be re-visited at a Club meeting in the near future to once again set the priorities of LARC. Special thanks to Corbin VE3NIS for compiling and editting the list.

Celebrate Canada's 150 anniversary, with our special prefix.
