 Website

Bill Dearborn has been very busy over the last several months  learning to be a website development specialist. The end result will be an up-to-date website that the club can use on any platform and  at a fraction of the cost of what the club is paying now. $65.00 for this year. Bill is having some problems with Windows 10 new  browser. Bill’s notes on building our new website can be seen at  http://blog.wjdearborn.ca/. A big KUDO to Bill for all his efforts.

Newsletter – Samir could not make it to the meeting.

Secretary – Wayne had no comment!!!

President

The club has purchased four tables and eight chairs to add to our four tables and eight chairs. These items and the Carousel Horse are stored at Tory's shop. Many thanks to Tory for his  kindness.

The Queen City Ex was another success. Many people came in to see our display even though they had just gone to the EX not expecting to see Woodcarving displays.

Linda also brought a number of Club vests to show and, hopefully, sell ($35).

Linda reminded the meeting that her term as president was soon expiring. Please give this some thought. Also Vice-president.

Other business

Dave Hornung distributed a "Meet a Member" page indicating what facts members should submit to Dave along with photos, etc.. Once completed please submit to Dave's e-mail,  d.hornung@accesscomm.ca

A small raffle was conducted to disperse three or four items that were not claimed from the Penny Parade in the Spring Show.
