Charity Fundraising at 2002 Erie County Fair

The Erie County Fair was held in August and ran for over a week

As in years past, the Western NY Woodturners held their charity fundraiser at the event

All of the receipts were donated to the Make a Wish foundation

The club set up shop on the porch with displays and demos

The sales booths were well stocked with items and drew good traffic

Over the duration of the event, many of our members volunteered to sell and turn
