      ARPSC HONOR ROLL.  In January of last year, I introduced a new award
      program for the Michigan ARRL Section.  That is the Honor Roll for
      Emergency Coordinators/Radio Officers and their counties who had
      achieved a full calendar year of 100% monthly reporting.  I received a
      surprisingly high level of very positive feed back on this program.
      Most assuredly this effort continues and I am pleased to announce those
      individuals who have achieved 100% reporting during calendar 2010.
      These EC/ROs are congratulated on their well managed EMCOMM programs in
      their respective counties.   We now acknowledge that effort and thank
      the EC/ROs and members from the following counties for fulfilling their
      annual goals and welcome them to the Michigan ARPSC Honor Roll:
