ANNOUNCEMENTS:

Jake informed us that in Nov. we will be having our yearly auction. So if you have anything lying around you don’t use, bring it and auction it off. All proceeds go to the club. It is our annual fund raiser.

We are in need of a demo for Dec. So if you want to volunteer see Jake.

 

Old Business

Bob Wiesdel brought in samples of the shirt for members to try on and order the color they want. If you haven’t ordered one and still want to, see Bob, he’ll give you the details.

 

Barb Berger reported on the kid’s day pen making session that was to be held at her barn on Oct 20th. Since there were only 2 kids that were going the take the session, given by Debbie and Mike Hachey, she opened it up too any member who wants to learn pen turning.

 

New Business

Election of officers took place. The slate of officers that was presented was elected since there were no volunteers from the floor for any of the offices. Our new officers are:

President – Ron Hudson

Vice-President – John O’Neil

Secretary - Muriel Kummer

Treasurer – Pat Boggan

Jim Hilburger reported on the woodworking show. Because the entrance to the show was late, the response of workers was low. Thank you to those of you that did work. The new owners of the show allowed us to sell for Make-A Wish. Thanks to Jim there was product to sell. $535.00 was raised.

 

Lance Eggleston suggested the club participate in a design challenge. He supplied oak blocks for members to design a form out of. He is offering cash prizes to the winners. The form can be anything the members want to make in any venue. The only stipulation is he gets to keep the forms.
