Vice President’s Report


We don’t have a meeting schedule set up in the Hamburg School yet.  Rusty will let us know as soon as things are set.





Librarian’s Report


No new videos, but there are still interesting and instructive videos to sign out.





            There was only one letter regarding the State Fair.  Not really clear on what they wanted.



Old Business


            The Family Picnic will be held on Thursday, August 22, at 4:30 PM at the Nicodemus Church on Lideria Rd., Marilla, in the St. Bemus Reserve picnic shelter.  Meat, rolls and drink will be supplied.  Bring a dish to pass and enjoy just being with friends.  Pat has the sign up sheet.


            Paul has the signup sheet for workers and turners for the fair.  All help is appreciated.  The raffle prize is a scroll saw clock.  Second prize will be a bowl.  The first prize winner will be allowed to choose either the clock or the bowl.


            There will be a beginners session @Barb’s Barn on the Sunday, August 25th.  Please let Barb know if you are interested.


            There will be a session @ Barb’s Barn on Sept. 15, 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM.  John Cave is the instructor.  He will be demonstrating lidded boxes.  The class has been filled, but Barb will be taking names in case of openings.



New Business


            Because the building used for the Women’s Exhibits at the Erie County Fair is being torn down, Jerry Rucker has been discussing taking some of the old beams from the building and making something for the women to save.  We don’t know how many things we’ll need to make, but it would be a good will gesture. 


            The last of the colored wood is here.  Ron Fults is donating what he bought back to the club.  He bought the wood and can’t us it.  After the fair, we’ll get together to see what we want to do with it.  Possibly some other club might want to use some of it.
