Downtown Farmers Market is a great place to purchase locally grown produce.  Check out the festivities at "www.downtownfremontohio.org".  Sandusky Valley Amateur Radio Club will have an operating station setup, during the June 15 market, to demonstrate to the community our ability to communicate during and after a disaster.  We can communicate with local, state, and federal agencies helping to coordinate damage assessment and rescue efforts.  Stop by our tent to see how the club and ARES accomplishes this.  You can also get information on becoming an Amateur Radio Operator and joining the team.
