Librarian’s Report:


            Anyone wishing to donate magazines and/or videos to the library should contact John O’Neil.


Old Business


            The members discussed the success of buying the colored wood and offering it to members at a really good price.  The discussion that followed was on what the members made with this wood and other more general topics.


New Business


            There will be a barn session at Barb’s Barn on May 9 & 10.  The demonstration will be by Bob Rosan.


            Muriel Kummer has chains available for anyone interested in making chain pulls for the fair in August.  She will be back in April, so contact her then.


            It was suggested that a handout be made up for new members.  It should include e-mail addresses of Officers, and phone numbers as well. 


            You can support AAW by buying the American Woodturners Magazine.  Pamphlets are available with all the information for joining and receiving the magazine.
