Carvers Corner
(or Gary’s Gossip Column)

Many of us enjoyed the Artistry in Wood Show in Ohio. It was held in a new location this year and was a very nice place to hold a show. We have already been informed that we will go back to Wilmington once again next October 15th & 16th as a new date.

We are still continuing to work on Comfort Birds. Thanks again to all who have been helping us with getting these birds cut out and carved.  We are getting closer to our goal this year so any help would be appreciated.

The Board of Directors voted to suspend the December Show. We will still have our Carry-in and Live Auction as in the past. We can use some Live Auction items for our December Auction. If you have any carvings or carving items to donate bring them to the Club. Yes, I know it’s early but we sold everything we had at the July Auction.

Our Woodburning Weekend was really a success. All had a ball and even watched some of the Art auction here in town.

Dues are $10.00 + $1.00 per each family member. Due in December.

Your Ol’ carvin’ buddy,
