Connestee has closed the clubhouse and administrative offices due to unsafe road conditions. Residents have been advised to stay off the roads.
I think it is important that we cancel today’s meeting and reschedule the visit to Giving Tree Cabinets till later in the year.
Woodcrafters will not meet today. The general manager’s office of Connestee Falls has closed the clubhouse where we meet, along with administrative offices and advises residents to stay off the roads, due to icy conditions.
I am optimistic we can reschedule the visit to Giving Tree Cabinets to a date later this year.

COME ONE COME ALL !!!!!!!!
Wow it is cold and you have been inside!!!! Get out and talk with friends. We will be talking about the new renovation of the community center and our project to build
decorative hangings over the bar area. Everyone will have hands on experience.
Also we will be discussing the donation of the $500 remaining in the profits from the sharpening event.
The meeting started at 1:00pm and we talked about the donations. We voted and approved the donation to the Connestee Falls employee’s fund of $500.00. As far as the donation to the scholarship fund, that was tabled till January meeting so the discussion could continue. After the meeting we went to Chuck Kidwell’s shop on Broad Street in Brevard. Chuck is a self taught carver and has developed his own personal carving style. You can tell he loves his work in carving and his artwork shows it.
Thanks to the program committee for setting up all the great adventures we had this past year. We will be having a program committee meeting December 6th at Doug Kish’s house at 1:00pm for next years programs.
Be safe in your travels and have a happy holiday season.

Last meeting of the year. We are going to meet a woodcarver located right here in Brevard. We are also voting on the funds raised at the sharpening event. I also want to wish every one a happy holiday and to be safe in your travels.

Stone Mountain Cabinetry Tour, Robert Grieves,the owner, has designed a shop from the bottom to the top. Saving steps with machine layout to reclaiming wasted heat. It is great to get ideas for my own shop. Great Tour.
We will have a vote on what to do with the money from the turning event at the November meeting because we did not have a quorum in October . It was suggested that we donate $500.00 to the student scholarship fund and $500.00 to the CF employee fund, totaling $1000.00 leaving the club treasury at $696.00 for future projects. Open discussion before voting.
