The Erie County
Fair will be held from Thursday, August 10th through Sunday,
August 20th. The Turners 1 and Turners 2 will hold their
Make-A-Wish charity fundraiser at the fair. Put the dates on your calendar so
you can participate. We'll be in our usual spot on the porch of the Woodcarvers
building. You can lend a hand by making items ahead of the fair as well as
"working the booth" at the event. You can make items now and add them
to the stock available for the fair. Al Schultz is collecting fair sale
turnings at the Turners 1 meetings and Jake Debski is
doing the same at the Turners 2 meetings. Spend a few minutes making things and
dropping them off now so there isn't a mad scramble just before or during the
event. For the last couple of years, we've raised over $6000 each year for the
will co-host John Jordan this fall for two days of demonstrations.
