Thank you to everyone that helped out at this years event. 237 messages were sent to the North Pole over the two days.
And a special thanks to Jim Wade for spending his time with us and sending all those messages.
On Friday November 22, SVARA will be at the Children's Zoo to fill out Santagrams for the annual "Holiday in the Heart of the City"
This year we hope to again have the honor of having Jim Wades (WB8SIW) send the Santa Grams directly to to Ed Trump (AL7N) in Fairbanks
Alaska via telegraph. The event will run from 5 until 9 PM. Setup will begin at 4:30 pm at the zoo.
Over 200 messages were sent via the telegraph connection last year. Both adults and children participate ... producing sometimes funny,
sometimes poignant and sometimes, simply traditional messages
On Saturday November 23, SVARA members (and Mr. Wades) will be at the Castle Museum to fill out and send the Santagrams through to Fairbanks.
It will be open from noon until 4 PM.
Show your support for this wonderful cause and volunteer to help at this years event.
