I would like to give my congratulations and warm welcome to Jim Bird, VA3CC, as the new Peterborough ARES Group Coordinator (EC) as of July 2015. Jim is now retired and has the time, energy and interest in taking the ARES group up to the next level. I will be glad to provide any support and guidance he and his leadership team may need over the course of his two-year term. Jim is replacing Terry, VA3MTT, who was the Group Coordinator for the past couple of years. Terry is stepping down due to increased demands related to his work position, but is remaining an active member. I wish to thank Terry for the work he has done for the group and wish him well in his endeavors.
