May 22nd will mark five years since the devastating tornado that tore through Joplin and Duquesne. To honor this occasion, we announce Joplin Proud – events to remember what we lost, thank the volunteers who came to our aid, and be proud of the progress we have made as a community. One part of this will be the Joplin Tornado Memorial Special Event Station. Over the next few months, many volunteers will continue to work hard to create a variety of events to mark this occasion. We hope you will decide to take part in this amazing weekend!
We plan on operating the special event station along the tornado path and marathon route in 2016, using the club call W0IN from 0630 on 21 May through 1741 on 22 May CDT, or 1130 on 21 May through 2241 on 22 May UTC.
