It’s with a mixture of sadness and excitement that we bid farewell to our treasurer, and longtime ABC colleague, John Woodford/N2JW. After more than 30 years at the Alphabet Network, John has signed off from his leadership role in network technical maintenance, and signed on for the next chapter of his life in sunny Central Florida.
John retired March 31st to join his wife, a choreographer, at their new home in Lake Mary, FL, just outside Orlando. As a result, John has vacated his role as our club treasurer (and the overseer of our ham shack restoration project).
We wish John well in his new adventure…and thank him profoundly for his service to BEARS. His will be a hard act to follow…but thankfully, Ed Yang/KD2KEF, has volunteered to succeed John as our treasurer. Ed is a relatively new ham, licensed at a BEARS VE session. He’s a manager in ABC’s broadcast systems support group…and we’re thrilled to have him join our BEARS executive board.
BEARS thanks both of these extraordinary men for their service to our Club.
