The year is rapidly coming to a close and before we know it, it will time for the Show. I hope everyone is working on their Show entries and planning a carving for the theme as well. I know there are many demands for our time as the holidays approach but please take time to register for the Show and pay your dues for the upcoming year. I know our club treasurer would appreciate as many as possible complete the registration form so he can assign a carver number. Early registration will make his job a lot easier as we approach the Show date.
Our Holiday Party is scheduled for December 4, 2018 at Carmel church. Please mark your calendars accordingly and remember guests are welcome. Anyone having any items to donate for the party, such as carvings, tools, wood and related materials, please contact me before November 25, 2018.
The club still has T-shirts, hats, polo shirts and club badges for sale. Please contact Joe Davis if you are interested in purchasing any club apparel.
Congratulations to our club members who recently participated in the Hickory, NC and the Ohio Artistry in Wood carving shows. The Charlotte Woodcarvers Club was well represented and won numerous ribbons. I am constantly amazed at the creativity and artistry our club members exhibit.
I hope you all have a safe and Happy Thanksgiving.
Your positive action with positive thinking results in success.Al Wheeler
