     As many of you know, The M&K Club has been meeting on the campus of St. Norbert College for many years. They have also allowed for having antennas and a space for operating radios. With the remodeling of the G-M Science Building to hold the new Medical Science program, we had to remove the antennas and the entire radio set up we had in the Audio/Visual area. 
Basically, we were homeless. Through the help of one of the Staff, we were able to hold our meetings in a room of what is now the Security Building.  When the remodeling was completed, a committee was formed to present a request to relocate with being able to have a radio operations area. 
   This was a daunting task because they could have said no.
  Without going into an even longer story, they not only allowed us to use the big conference room but to set up right next to it for the radios plus space on  the roof for the antennas.
  They provided the desk, the cabinet above it and some lockers besides.
   Having this for a number of years now, the membership voted to show our appreciation for this privilege by presenting the College President Tom Kunkel a check for $500..
