Duane has gotten a commitment from various members for the October 10th meeting. We will have them demonstrate their jigs at the shop of Sandy and Ron Williams. There shop is located at ‘gasoline Alley’ off of Desoto across from Faith Lutheran Church at the Auto Hobby shop complex. The address is Unit 104F. It is a new large building as you enter the drive. Meeting starts at 6:30 and bring your own chair.
Special Projects has a project that will be very rewarding. The Garland County Humane Society, Rt 128, needs a lot of help. They have no funds for anything. They survive by donations only. They are a ‘non-terminating’ center for animals. Mike Thorsen will be looking for volunteers to fix/repair/build items for the facilities. Please contact Mike if you’re interested in helping out. It may be a few days a month, but more info will follow.
Next month’s meeting will be at Mike Thorsen’s house at 6:30 pm.
