Announcements

Nov. meeting: Our annual fund raiser. Our annual auction will be held. So bring in those items you don’t want, and auction them off to the rest of us. All proceeds to benefit the club treasury.

 

It was announced that if the meetings this year were cancelled due to snow days, the meeting will be held on the following Thursday. Also take note that in January and June the meeting will be held on a Wednesday instead of Thursday; Jan 13 and June 9.

 

Old Business 

Rich Mialki informed members that he still has some coupon boxes for sale at $.25 each.

 

He also informed the members that 3 children from WNY received their wishes due to the efforts at the fair by the club members of the three clubs. Special thanks were given to: Bob Ball, Jim Hilburger, Garry Jones and Rich Mialki for their untiring efforts for Make-A-Wish.

 

 

Rich Mialki reported on the Cindy Drozda demo. He said the turn out for the free demo at Pembroke was a disappoint; only 30 people took advantage of it. However, the hands-on held at Barb’s barn was the best to date. Cindy proved to be very knowledgeable, and a good instructor. Her project of finials was well received by all that attended. She must have been good if she got Pat Delmonte to turn something small.

 

Rich Mialki still has access to Buckthorn bush wood if anyone wants some. Contact him.

 

New Business

 

Barb Berger requested that the club purchase Cindy Drozda’s DVD for our library.

The motion to do this was made and passed.

 

Paul Mazuchowski informed member he needs someone to take photos of the member’s show and tell items for the website. Pat Delmonte volunteered for Nov. along with Ron Hudson.

 

Pat Boggan informed the member about Woodcraft’s” Turning pens for the Troops” project, they are sponsoring.

 

Message from Pat concerning this project.

I will not be at Thursday’s meeting.  (I'll be in New Mexico) Would you please mention the Pens for Troops program from Woodcraft?

 

1.  Due date is November 10th.

 

2.  Woodcraft will supply: a 10 pack of slim line pen kits, 10 labels for a personal message, and 10 bags in which to put pens.  Turner supplies wood.  (they have a sale going on now)

    (Woodcraft has a limited supply of kits immediately available, but should be getting more in soon)

 

3.  If someone already has some pens turned they can take them into the store and will be given a 10 pack of kits when they are available for each grouping of 10 pens brought in.

 

Thanks,

 

Any questions?  Just ask before Monday night. 

 

Election of officers for coming year was held.

A motion was made and passed to accept the slate of officers presented to the membership.

ELMER’S CORNER: Slicker Surfaces with Wax Paper

Found in December 2009 issue of Woodworker’s Journal.

Rubbing wax paper on your table saw, jointer, or planner tables will keep them slippery smooth and rust-free. It’s a good substitute for paste wax.
