In the heart of the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic lies a treasure known as the Wireless Room, a testament to the remarkable dedication of individuals who have poured their hearts and souls into creating a world-class exhibit. Today, we’d like to pay tribute to two extraordinary individuals who have been instrumental in making the Wireless Room what it is today: Dick Grantham and Gerry Lunn.
Dick Grantham and Gerry Lunn, two passionate souls, worked tirelessly to bring the Wireless Room to life. Their unwavering commitment and boundless enthusiasm were the driving forces behind this exhibit’s success. Without their original efforts, this showcase of maritime communication history would not be the awe-inspiring experience it is today.
As we gather at our Christmas dinner, we take a moment to express our heartfelt gratitude for the incredible contributions made by Dick and Gerry over the years. Their vision, hard work, and passion have left an indelible mark on our museum and the countless visitors who have been captivated by the Wireless Room’s story.
Today, we also want to acknowledge Gordon, who has taken up the torch and continues to keep the dream alive. Gordon’s dedication and determination have ensured that the Wireless Room remains a beacon of knowledge and inspiration for generations to come.
We’d be remiss, not to mention the incredible volunteers like Dick, Gordon, and countless others who make the Halifax Amateur Radio Club (HARC) truly amazing. Your selfless efforts are the backbone of our community, and we are endlessly grateful for your tireless commitment.
We extend our sincerest thanks to the museum staff, like Gerry Lunn, who have played a pivotal role in making this dream a reality. Your support and collaboration have been invaluable.
As we come together this holiday season, let’s remember and celebrate the legacy of Dick Grantham and Gerry Lunn. Their passion has enriched our lives, and their contributions will continue to inspire us.
Here’s to the Wireless Room’s past, present, and future and to the continued work of Gordon Young, carrying forth a vision that shines as brightly as ever.
