Ron received catalogues and a schedule for upcoming workshops. Anyone interested in these let him know.
The colored wood will be delivered at the May meeting. There are some larger pieces of colored wood that weigh about 20 lbs. each. Those will be set aside to be sold as needed to club members. A motion was made, seconded and carried that Brian sort the wood according to weight and distribute it.
