We are running low on prizes for show & tell. It was suggested the club buy gift cards. Rich Mialki made a motion, 2nd by Mary Robbins for the club to buy $10 gift cards from Rockler’s for this purposed. It was passed.

 

Update from Rich Mialki on fair, Aug 11 – 22: WJCK Radio, 1230AM, will be broadcasting there on Friday 4-7PM, and Sat morn 8-10Am, to promote Make-A-Wish and our efforts for them. Hopefully this will help generate sales.

So, keep turning product for this worthy cause. It is our biggest money raiser for the year. We all need to contribute to make a difference

ELMER’S CORNER: Found in Feb. 2013, The Family Handyman  

Hassle-free picture hanging.

When you’re hanging a picture that has a wire across the back, it’s hard to get your hand behind the picture to guide the wire over the hook. Try this: Slide a piece of string between the hook and the wall. Put the wire over the string and lower the picture into place. The string will guide the wire right over the hook. Drop one end of the string and pull it off the hook. Done.
