Happy Holidays from Raven Radio! Photos by Rebecca LaGuire/KCAW

You are cordially invited to attend a holiday open house on Tuesday, December 18th from 4 to 6pm to enjoy a beverage and snacks with Raven Radio volunteers, staff and board members. That same night at 6:35pm, in an effort to expand participation in our annual meeting, we’ll broadcast it live! The meeting will feature updates on station finances, news, renovations and a call-in discussion of programming. We’ll also announce the results of the election for the board of directors. Although the meeting will be broadcast, and then posted on kcaw.org, and those that wish to attend in person are welcome to attend right here at the station. Quorum for our annual meeting is established by the proxies that members mail in along with board election ballots. Thanks for returning those as soon as possible!

We used to hold the annual meeting after our Membership Thank You Dinner, but alas the times are changing. We have decided that the root beer float party for 500 people at the Cable House following the 4th of July parade was a better way to say “thank you” to even more Raven Radio supporters than a dinner for 200. That and our desire to allow folks from our entire listening area participate in the meeting led us to this new approach. I hope you enjoy it!

-Ken Fate, General Manager
