January 2, 2018-Bruce Lacy Multi-Axis Creations

    Hi, there fellow Woodturners. We’re about to close out 2017 and turn the page into 2018. Our first meeting will be on Tuesday, January 2 at 6:30 PM. We’ll gather at Hunter House* as usual.
     We’re going to start out the year with a demo from Bruce Lacy who will show us how to turn multi-axis objects. If you ever wanted to know how some turners can get odd shapes and curves in their turnings, this is the demo for you.

   We’ll have our standard raffle and show-n-tell during the meeting. If you have items you would like to donate to the raffle, bring them with you next Tuesday evening and for each item you donate (up to three), you will be given one free raffle ticket. Tickets are $1.00 each or six for $5.00.
    Raffle proceeds go in the treasury and help us pay for supplies, demonstrators and other operating expenses.
   Bring your latest turning to share with everyone so we can be awed by your talents and share in your turning experiences and expertise.
   If you have any completed Beads of Courage bowls, please bring them to the meeting so we can get them to the folks at Hemby Children’s Hospital. The next drop off at the hospital will be in early February.
    If you missed the last meeting here are the results of the elections for club officers for 2018: President: Kim Bass
Vice President: Bob Meunier
 Secretary: John Walsh
Treasurer: Dave McKeithan
Director: Joe Giannina
Director: Brian Bancroft
     When you see these folks on Tuesday, offer them your congratulations, support, suggestions and your willingness to assist with the club’s outreach programs.

 I hope to see y’all on the 2nd.

 Cheers jpw
