The next scheduled meeting is Thursday October 8 2009

 

 

Presidents Corner:

Im sorry that I missed the Sept. meeting. I hope you all had a geed summer and that we can get back on schedule, with our wood turning, for the up coming year.

 

We have a good group of members and have had a good program that had been on formative and enjoyable. It is my wish that this will continue in the up coming year.

 

As you know, the October meeting is the election of officers for the nest year. The slate of candidates is as follows: Pres. Ron Hudson; Vice Pres. - to be nominated; Sec. - Muriel Kummer; Treas. Pat Boggan; and Webmaster-Paul Mazuchowski. As you see we have no one to fill the Vice Pres. Position. So Im asking, you the membership, to thoughtfully consider to volunteer for this office. Our club can not properly function without a full slate of officers. Nominations are open at the Oct. meeting and anyone can have their name on the slate for any office.

 

Remember this is your organization and we all have the responsibility to do our part.

 

Ron Hudson, Pres.

 

Vice Pres. John ONeil called the meeting to order at 7:30PM

Guest present were: Ron Smith, Portland Oregon, and Ron Ellis, Silvercreek

 

Treasurer, Pat Boggan, reports for month of Sept

ELMERS CORNER: Drive-through Shop Towels

Found in Feb. 2009 Woodworkers Journal

How many times have you gone through a fast food drive-through and been given a bigger wad of napkins than you need? You use a few a throw the rest away. Collect the extras and bring them into the shop to use for glue-ups instead of expensive paper towels. These napkins are virtually free, and they work fine for clean-up,

 

Respectfully submitted,

Muriel Kummer
