(or Gary’s Gossip Column)

I hope you’re all having a great year and not too many have been fighting the old flu bug. Mildred and I have been fortunate to have missed out on it.

I’ve been getting a lot of calls on the newspaper article on the beginners carving class on February 20. Sounds like we will have a full class. Jeff will start off with relief carving, and then I plan on doing a small in the round snowman. We’ll work out the others as we go.

Here is a hearty thank you to all those still continuing to help out with the Comfort Birds.

It’s Dues collecting time. Just $10.00 + $1.00 per additional family member.

Your ol’ carvin’ buddy,


Ashland Area Woodcarvers
Caricature Carving Class

Steve Brown is having a seminar at the Ashland Ky. club on May 18, 19, 20, 2018.

Steve is planning on a three day class and he is bringing Dwayne Gosnell and Roger Stegall, it is going to be like the CCA event where you do one day with each instructor.

We need at least 24 students to have enough to do it; we have about 12 or so already signed up. If anyone from EWCC is interested in coming I can give them information on some lodging in the area.

I am currently talking to a Best Western and a Holiday Inn in the area for a special rate but I don’t know how that will turn out. Gina said that you could probably get the best rate  buy using Travelocity or one of the travel sites.


News and Notes

Sadly I am reporting the passing of Dr. Charlie Sabo,a Lexington carving friend. He was a constant visitor at Artistry in Wood and came to our July Show a couple of times.
