Meeting 7

Time: December 6, 2005 7:00 pm

To All Members of the Waxhaw Woodturners Club

MINUTES FOR DECEMBER, 2005 (REVISED)

We missed those of you that were not able to be with us. There were 12 in attendance and the food was
good. We had a great time together today at Mariachis for the Christmas / December meeting.

President Wyse called the meeting to order. First, the slate-of-officers were approved by voice vote and
only one abstention: Bill Carley, I don't believe he wanted to vote since it meant he would be our new
Vice President! He has graciously accepted but wanted to fuss just a bit on the surprise nomination.
(We love you Bill and you will do just fine!)

The new officers for 2005 are:
President-Dave McKeithan
Vice-President-Bill Carley
Librarian-John Hutchinson
Secy-Treasurer-Moe Gingerich

Please note that at the November meeting it was approved to have a rotating officer's pattern. This
means that The Librarian next year and the Vice president will move up one slot to President and Vice-
President. A new Librarian will be elected each year with the "old officers" moving up one slot and the
President will be retired. This provides for a lower workload for each position and a little experience
for each Officer before moving into the next slot. This has been a very viable system for other
organizations, but of course can be altered, as the Club needs change. In addition, the president will be
an approved signature on the checking account at First Charter Bank in Waxhaw.

Our Next Meeting will be on January 3rd, the First Tuesday evening. Place and time will be announced
by our new President Dave McKeithan. The WWClub Shop will be available while Moe will be in
Sarasota, Florida helping Edna to take care of her mother. You will need to pick up a key from
President Dave (704-843-4907) or V-P Bill (704-243-0624) after Moe leaves which will be close to
Christmas. Please feel free to avail yourself of the shop during the Christmas and New Year Holidays.

We had a mini White Elephant Gift Exchange and it was fun to see how many wood projects were
included. Real nice stuff you are making folks! We wished Paul and Peggy Wyse speedy traveling and
we will be so sorry to see them go to Harrisonburg, Va. Vernon Frank offered a prayer of Blessing for
them as they leave. We will miss them very much. Paul's wisdom has been good in our new Club.

God Bless all of you and have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
