Congratulations! Mike Kearney is the Linn County Sherif's Office
Volunteer of the Year ARES 2016
|note: Mike and his wife Barbara KB7ARB moved to Florida last year and arrived just in time for Hurricane Irma. They were assigned to a local High School in Sarasota and Mike and Barb were able to help pass traffic to other shelters. I guess there was not enough 'action' in Linn County for them!|
