While standing in the checkout line at my favorite grocery store I spent a brief moment reading the scholarly publications offered at the checkout counter. They had run out of the Harvard Business Review, Barrons, and The Wall Street Journal. However, something called The National Enquirer caught my eye. I decided to model our Cumberland Amateur Radio Club News Page after what I saw. Their headline sounded so good that I wanted it to be my headline too.
Photos and other content that CARC Members send to me are very much appreciated. I did receive some materials from one of our active members and I will be posting those contributions this evening.
I invite additional activity. This is where you can make a difference.
I offered Selfie-Sticks to all those who attended our most recent meeting. Much the same as the main character in the Clement Moore poem, visions of sugar plums danced through my head as I envisioned all the photographic material and web page content that soon would grace my email inbox. I went home Wednesday night with as many Selfie-Sticks as I had on my in-bound voyage.
Perhaps you were simply overwhelmed with the outpouring of Member Appreciation Night goodies. That’s okay. Here comes a fresh opportunity. Forget the Selfie-Sticks. Any photo will do the job. Your best anecdote will rival anything that Jack Benny or Milton Berle ever put on the AM radio.
I will be waiting.
