I want to thank all of you who came to the Christmas Potluck and gift exchange. Everyone had a good time, with good food filling us up and fun/interesting/entertaining gifts exchanged... and exchanged.. and exchanged.
A GREAT BIG THANK YOU to Ivan Brown for his hard work as President last year. And to Arlene Spaulding for her willingness to work so hard as Treasurer, and in many other areas as well.
Your new officers have met and discussed continuing with the good plans laid down by the previous officers. Bob Gough is continuing as Vice President, and is heading up the committee to plan the March Artistry in Wood Show. He will be needing lots of help to make it a success. From set up to take down, hands are needed to help in any way they can. Please let Bob know that you are willing and available to help.
THANKS TO NITA for making patches and giving them to members who had none. I hope everyone will be wearing their vests to the show, to show who we are. It makes a difference if a visitor has a question or needs some help. If you don't have a vest and don't sew, perhaps you can make a deal with someone who does. Trade-barter-buy ... whatever works.
Your new officers are looking forward to keeping this club going, but we can't do it alone. Do bring us suggestions and ideas that YOU want to see addressed. We are working on some new ideas now and will bring them to the meeting. Be willing to be flexible as we try them out. :>)
HAPPY NEW YEAR, AND HAPPY CARVING!!!! ...... Jannie B.
