CARVERS’ CORNER
(or Gary’s Gossip Column)

 

The E.W.C.C.  July Carving Show was just great again. Attendance was good and the weather was decent. I hope you all got to come and enjoy our show.

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. Knightstown’s Quality Hardwoods donated some six foot long basswood 2 ½ X 2 ½ for cutting out birds.

Our raffle went well. The Enlow casting was won by Nancy Arrick, the McDonald Clock was won by Gary Helton. The Gosnell carving “Bucket List” was won by Larry Fox and the 4th Annual Tom Brown Memorial Knife by Smithson and holder by Dewayne Gosnell was won by Steve Fowler.

Would some of the carvers like to do carving live during Kokomo’s August 4th First Friday at the Kokomo Howard County Public Library? See an officer.

Dues are $10.00 + $1.00 per each family and remember it’s always Due in December.

Your Ol’ carvin’ buddy,
Gary
