Fellow Woodturners, Our next meeting is Tuesday, Nov 3, 2015 at the Lyndon House Arts Center, 293 Hoyt St, Athens. As usual, the meeting begins at 6 PM but if you can, come at 5:30 and help with set-up. Our demonstration this month is wooden jewelry making presented by our own Jim Talley! Other jewelry makers in the local area have been invited so lets have a good turn out. His demonstration will include pendants (off-enter, chatter, texture), beads, earrings, and bangles (bracelets). There will be a small display of finished examples, as well.
Lou tells me he hasn’t received any volunteers for Club President or VP even though it is election time for 2016 officers. Someone needs to step up and take one or both of these positions if the club is to continue. Also, if you want to have a club Christmas Party you need to let Lou know with resounding support.
Two more bits of info concerning the Nov 3rd meeting; Lou reminds me that pizza will be served – more incentive to be there! Also, a large oak tree in front of the Lyndon House is being cut down. If you would like to get some of the wood, let Lou know. All it cost is to turn an item for the Lyndon House from a piece of the wood! See you Tuesday!
