Good Evening One and All,
So Wednesday evening we meet at Woodcraft. This month we are doing our "intra-club event" (No demonstration) so bring some of the work you have created during the last year and be a possible winner for one of our three "grand prizes"!
Next, this Friday and Saturday are the first two days of the "Shriner Toy Build" at Woodcraft. This evening I have been calling those folks who volunteered and getting them scheduled. If you didn't volunteer, or didn't answer your phone, you will have another chance in January on the 11th & 12th. Our goal is to construct 800 cars/trucks for the Shriner"s to give ailing children who are in the hospital. It is a great cause and one we, Ada County Wood Workers, have supported for many years. Thank you to Bill Johnson and Jack Keifer for helping me with organizing and rounding up materials for this years build.
The Christmas Party is December 1, 5:00 p.m. at the Westminster Presbyterian Church on 6500 W. Overland Rd. in Boise. If you would like to participate in the gift exchange, and/or your significant other would like to participate as well, then bring along a "hand made gift" and you're in business (wood is good but so are home made - preserves, quilts, tote bags etc.). If you bring a gift you are "exchanging".....if you do not bring a gift then the "Parking Lot Elves" will load fifty pound coal bags into your car whilest you are gorging, ruminating and questioning the meaning of your dietary choices. Really, seriously the exchange is fun. And if you truly do not want something else for your "collection" then participate anyway and re-gift what you receive. It is a fun way to acquire a nice gift for the grand kid with everything.
I hope to see each of you this Wednesday.
Be well, be square, be sharp,
