    Congrats to K1VR and N2RJ!

    Tom, K1KI, is a great guy, but I and (obviously) some others felt that certain League positions needed correction and Fred was in a better position to do that.

    Tom was , and is, always fair, friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful and needs to be commended for the vast amount of time he put in, over many years, on behalf of NE Division members. Thank you Tom!

    The near toss up between Valerie and Kermit was a tough call-- both excellent choices. Try again Val!
