MONTHLY PRESIDENT'S NOTES
President's report for June 2016
- Welcome to our new members: Ron Barton, Cheryl Darrow, Chris Dye, Robert Evans, Bruce Imsande and Chrystal Robinson.
- SWAT is just around the corner so if you have not made your reservation it could cost you more. The cutoff date for refunds will be August 1st and the cutoff for online registration is August 8th. If you would like to mail in your registration rather than paying online go to www.swaturners.org and click on the Registration Link. A mail in link is available. Open it, print the form and mail it in with your check. The rotation schedule is now on the website and a reminder to anyone interested in the gourmet burger bar on Friday night, the tickets will have to be purchased online in advance, as tickets will not be sold at the symposium.
- Tops, tops and more tops. Bob’s May challenge was a spinning success with small tops and blingy tops in abundance, even one extremely large two handed top. Keep up the good work and toast yourself with a thin stemmed goblet for the June challenge.
- Ray Moyer is coordinating our Beads of Courage program. See Ray for your label bead(s) and any other information on the program. The boxes are not difficult to turn and with almost 200 WNT members we would like to have a good showing of our boxes at SWAT. Our boxes are donated to Cooks Children’s hospital for seriously ill children to store their “courage beads” received for each procedure they have.
- Ron Traylor is taking over the Empty Bowls coordinators position from Sandy Jarrell. Sandy has done a great job over the years and we greatly appreciate his work. Lets keep up our turned bowl production for 2016 as these help provide a large part of Tarrant County Food Bank’s operating funds.
- See you at 6:30pm Thursday and be safe.
The mission of the Woodturners of North Texas is to advance the creative pursuit of woodturning through educational programs, practical demonstrations and community service projects. Personal achievement is encouraged through mentoring, design challenges and member participation.
