News items


Winter Weather Notice

Our March 9 meeting was snowed out, so the program planned for March will be presented on April 13

Project-of-the-Month for April

The February meeting featured cutting threads in wood, so the POM would be something with threads.  If you don't want to make the investment in threading tools, the president has chosen an alternate POM to be a plate or platter.  Bring either a threaded item or a plate/platter to the April meeting for a chance to win a gift card.

Dues are Due

Dues for 2023 were up for renewal by the February meeting.  However, it's not too late!  Please fill out the membership form and either send it, along with your payment, to Don Coleman (address is on the form) or bring them to the next meeting.  If you can't remember if you've paid, just drop a note to the club e-mail and we can look it  up.

Empty Bowls Project

As in past years, we will participate in the Empty Bowls Project at the Marion Arts Festival on May 20th.  Our club will donate bowls to be sold, with the proceeds going to local food banks.  It's not too early to start turning bowls for this.



Monthly Meetings


The April meeting will be April 13, 2023, at the Marion High School wood shop on Thursday at 6:30 pm.  The topic will be an exchange of ideas about pen making, moderated by Tom Mills.
        (Maps to the high school are here and here.)
