————————–
June 6 meeting note: it will be at the North Spokane Library on Hawthorne Road. The speaker will be Brian Moran (N9ADG) Editor of the ARRL Contest Journal. His presentation is called
“ARRL Sweepstakes from the Pacific Northwest.”

———————————————————————
We have been erroneously posting that the Argonne Library is in the City of Spokane Valley. It is not. It may be located way East of Spokane City, but it is in Spokane County, not in the City of Spokane Valley. The boundaries of the City of Spokane Valley vary.
