As report by Jake Debski:

The picnic was a success. The facilities were just right for such a gathering. All the attendees said how much they enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere, and the food. The Club supplied the hot dogs and burgers along with the soft drinks and coffee. The attendees made sure we were very well fed with all manners of salads, side dishes, and of course desserts. The talk,, aside from the good natured banter, of which there was plenty, was the Fair and its successes. Pat Del Monte regaled us with his enthusiasm for the newest tool in his arsenal. I suspect Jim Hilburger is considering a limited production run sometime in the future. We gave away three door prizes the best of which was a fifty dollar Gift Card from Rockler. So a BIG THANK YOU to Ed Jolls for coming through for us once again.

Thank you, to Ron Hudson and his wife Thelma for arranging the use of the shelter and the idea of a picnic in the first place.

Pat Bogan was truly responsible for the success. Pat brought along everything you could think of that we might need, and as it turned out we needed plenty. Hats off to Pat, and thank you.

If I missed anyone, next time I'll try harder, that's a promise.

And thank you, to all the spouses and members that brought such a tasty array of foods. For those that could not attend, I'm sorry, but you missed a dandy.

 Old Business 

The fair was a great success again this year. This letter was received from Make-A-Wish upon hearing of the results. The final tally and results will be reported at the meeting by Rich Mialki.

Rich,

WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  That is incredible.  We really appreciate everything that your group does for our children.  That is enough to grant three wishes.  I will work next week on assigning the children and will bring the information with us to the meeting.  Thank you for all that you do to help share the power of a wish!

ELMER’S CORNER:

Here’s one I found in the October issue of Woodworker’s Journal.

The soft touch finishing board.

A good way to elevate small panels or projects while applying finish is to drill a grid of 3/8 “diameter holes in a piece of scrap plywood and stick pencil erasers in the holes. The erasers suspend your work piece so you can finish around the edges, and the soft runner tips won’t scratch the wood or newly applied finish. Reposition the erasers as needed to suit the shape of the part you are finishing.

 

Respectfully submitted,

Muriel Kummer
