Announcements

 

            Rick Mialki, who was to give the demonstration, had a heart attack.  He will not be here tonight.  He is in good condition and hopes to be back with us soon.  A get well card will be sent to him.

 

Vice President’s Report

 

            Jim Hilberger will be doing the demonstration in March.

            Only one person brought in his homework, which was a list of suggestions for future demonstrations. 

            Everyone is asked to please bring in your suggestions so we can get demonstrations that would be of interest to everyone.

 

Old Business

 

            This is the last month for dues.

 

             The lathe session for the combined lathe clubs for sometime this spring or summer, will have to be scrapped, due to possible electrical problems.  This suggestion

can be considered at a later date.  Paul might be doing a session at Barb’s Barn sometime in April, so there will at least be something for our members.

 

            Last month, a communication from another group raised safety questions.  A safety list was also included in the letter.  Brian made copies of the list for anyone who would like one.

 

New Business

           

            No new business
