Announcements

 

2011 – 2012 meeting dates will be the 2nd Thursday except in April and June. The dates given by Hamburg were the same as the Turner 1 dates so Rusty will be contacting Hamburg to change them.

 

Pres. Ron Hudson took meeting over to discuss Old and New business.

 

Old Business

 

A reminder that our annual picnic is on Thursday August 25th at St. Nicodemus picnic shelter and grounds on Liberia Rd.  Start time is 4:30 p.m.  Bring a dish to pass. Plus place settings.  Hamburgers and hotdogs plus drinks will be provided.  Contact Pat Boggan (892-0517 or pjbogan@aol.com) if your availability changes.

 

The Erie County Fair:  Pepper explained the new parking pass system.  Passes are for the triangle lot off of Clark St. and are date specific.  Turners can drop off their supplies at the UPS gate and then park.  There will be someone at that gate.

Steve Imerese has donated a segmented vase to be auctioned off.

ELMER’S CORNER: Woodsmith; vol. 33 / no. 195: Handy Tool Storage

Single hooks on a pegboard take up too much space for an extensive collection of screwdrivers and other small hand tools.

A compact solution for storing a lot of tools is a section of ammunition belt screwed onto the board. These belts can be purchased in most sporting good stores.

 

Respectfully submitted,

 

Muriel Kummer
