Milt & Grace Ehrenberg organized those present and took photos of the group for future publication and reference.  Thanks to Milt & Grace for a job well done.


Steve Imerese stated there has been an error in the April and May Newsletter with regard to the “Audubon Library Display”. It mistakenly informed the membership that Frank Stanko was the contact and/or coordinator for this event.  Frank did not volunteer to do this and is not to be contacted for this function. The editor of this Newsletter apologizes for this error.


Steve Imerese has volunteered to be the coordinator/contact person for the “Audubon Library Display” This is an opportunity for the membership to show examples of their work at the Library during the month of November. If you are interested in displaying your work contact Steve Imerese at (716) 688-6132 or at his e-mail address SAIwoodturner@yahoo.com .
