MARA LeBonheur Honor

At our last meeting, Maureen O’Connor, VP of Institutional Advancement, from LeBonheur Children’s Hospital, was presented with a check for LeBonheur from FreeFest. She praised our group for our commitment the last 8 years because MARA has raised over $33,000. The money we gave last year and this year has been matched by Methodist Hospital and placed in an Endowment Fund for LeBonheur. Look for a plaque with” Mid-South Amateur Radio Association” under the groups that have given over $25,000, the “Good Hour Society”, on the wall in main hallway!
