Vice President’s Report

 

Rusty has been in touch with Lian O’Neil.  He will be here in September next year.  He can do an all day demo for $800.00 or a night demo for $400.00.  He is requesting fees for overnight facilities and transportation.  We would also have to supply a lathe and chain saw.  He does containers and platters using soft wood, and cutting and finishing techniques. 

 

After much discussion it was decided that Rusty should contact Mr. O’Neil and let him know we can’t afford his prices, but if we could work out a reasonable compromise,                                                                                                                                                  we would like him to come and do a demo here at the meeting using only a small lathe.

 

 Jerry Rucker will be doing the demonstration in December.

 

 

Librarian’s Report

 

            John O’Neil has accepted the position of Librarian.  If you need any informational DVDs just let John know.

 

Communications

           

            None received.

 

Old Business

 

            Our photographer, John Lilley took some pictures at the last meeting, but it hasn’t been put into the gallery.  We should keep trying to get any pictures into the gallery.

 

New Business

 

We are looking for someone to take Rich Mialki’s position with the Make-A-Wish program.  We know that it will be difficult to fill his shoes.  Please let Ron know.

 

Please remember dues of $20.00 are due.

 

Jake and Rich volunteered to be auctioneers for the evening.
