ALL INTERESTED CLUB MEMBERS ARE INVITED TO A SHOW PLANNING MEETING!
Time: 
6:30 pm 
Date: 
Tuesday, September 16, 2014
Location: 
40 & 8 CLUB. 
Bring your ideas, thinking caps, broad shoulders, and zeal to help make the 2015 show better than ever.  Many hands make light work!

Join us on Monday, October 13, 2014 for a presentation by championship carver Al Jordan. Al will show us how to design a habitat, setting, mount, or base to present our pieces as complete integrated works of art instead of something simply glued to a base or stick.

REMEMBER:  BRING A FINISHED PIECE OR WORK IN PROGRESS TO SHARE AT OUR MONTHLY "SHOW AND TELL" TABLE.

The annual garage sale and club benefit auction was a resounding success!  A special thank you to Charter Member Roger McKeon for stopping by and donating to the sale.  He also presented the club with a hand-crafted pin worn by members "in the beginning..."  Thanks also to our intrepid auctioneer Al Cretney.  Some fabulous carving books found new homes, we're looking forward to seeing the results after the new owners finish their homework.

Library information now available online!   Resources are available for review and/or checkout at our monthly meetings.   Click on LibraryLink to view a list of offerings.
