Fellow Members:

We are a group with common interests. Within our group we have members of many different skill sets and knowledge. One of the big benefits of our group meetings is we get to share this knowledge by learning from others by talking, asking questions, or sometimes just watching. February's meeting was a great example where we had excellent presentations from 2 of our members on very different subjects. Our program will continue to have guest presenters. But I think the presentations by our members, no matter how long or short, and the accompanying questions and answers help us all. The field of woodworking is so broad that we can never know it all, there is always more we can find out that increases our enjoyment when working with wood.

You all have some knowledge, skill or experience in this broad field of woodworking, be it a project you completed, or as sometime happens, totally messed up. Could be an old tool you use that may not be seen in common use today. Or a special piece of wood you converted into a table lamp. There are endless possibilities.

Why not offer a talk about some aspect of your woodworking at one of our meetings? We always have a show-and-tell were you can bring along any of your work and give us a brief description of the "challenges" you overcame (or not).

We are in the middle of a membership drive. If you would like to help by asking your local woodwork supplier to display some of our newsletters and brochures, or if you have some friends at work etc, and would like to hand them some brochures than please let me know. We will send you some.
