New VBARC "Beach Shack"

Thanks to the family that owns the Ocean Park Fire & Rescue Building on Shore Drive and the VB Fire Dept. opening of a new Fire Station about 1 mile west of this building, we now have a home for a multi station ham shack, BOD meeting location, library and possibly future meeting location.  It will take a few months to get this location up and running but please volunteer to help construct the station into a great Ham Shack.
