From the Presidents Corner:

July 12th meeting program will be ICE CREAM & CELEBRATING 40th YEAR ANNIVERSARY. No need for carving knives this day…be sure to bring what treat you volunteered to bring.

Bring a guest so they can celebrate with us. Bring three of your carvings to display so we can inspire and share what we do. I will have name tags for guests and for your carvings….Members will have to wear your carved name tag.

Members going to the Southeastern Woodcarving School please bring and share what you worked on.

Think about this: We have an opportunity to have shirts printed with Atlanta Woodcarvers Club for members and family. Tim Mitchell will share details. We will vote to decide! If yes, what color? Supply your own shirt, cost would be no more than $8:00. Think about this.

If you would like to donate your Bird House to Trees of Tucker Club bring it Tuesday July 12, 2016. ____________________________________________________________________________ COMING UP:

AUGUST PROGRAM: Carving in the round, a furry animal or two…..one for painting in September, one for burning fur in October. A choice of Polar Bear (holiday ornament) or Cane topper from basswood eggs (tiger, cat, dog, or you may have another something in mind)
