Report: This is
Linda’s second year as our hard-working and knowledgeable president.
2014 was a very good year for our club. The Spring Show was a success
and even generated a profit. The display that the club put on at the EX
generated a lot of interest in our club. Classes for beginners,
Introduction to Power Carving, Carving on Thursdays (3rd
Thursday of the month), and Wednesday morning drop-in at the Neil
Balkwill Centre are all successful programs. The club had a special
Saturday for carving comfort birds.
that she is talking with a Charitable Organization to see if they would
be interested in partnering with us to raffle for the Carousel Horse.
This organization is province wide. If this is a go it should
generate exposure for our club and recoup expenses incurred in carving
the carousel horse. Linda has another meeting with this organization the
2nd week of February. The carvers who carved and painted the
carousel horse will make any decisions needed. We will acquire a large
photo-poster(s) of the horse for display purposes. Perhaps the club will
need to purchase some eight foot and/or six foot tables
to Linda for being our President (at least for another year).
The club reviewed the meeting of the Planning Committee of the 2015
Woodcarvers and Woodturners Spring Show.
We are planning
on going back into the EX.
