REMINDER-JULY 9, 2019 IS THE SUMMER PICINIC AT CARMEL CHURCH. WE WILL GATHER FOR DINNER AT 5:30. AS IN THE PAST, THE CLUB WILL PROVIDE TH E MEAT AND DISSERT. WE ASK THAT EACH ATTENDEE BRING A SIDE DISH TO FEED THEIR GUESTS PLUS 2 OTHERS. PLEASE DON’T FORGET TO BRING ANY NONPERISHABLE FOOD ITEMS FOR LOAVES AND FISHES.
With the hot humid summer months coming it’s not too early to early to start carving for the show which is only 8 months away. The theme is “Americana” and the possibilities are endless for all kinds of creative carving projects. I would like to see our club have a greater percentage of carvings for the show theme then we have had in the past. Let those creative juices flow and participate.
August is the time for the Wildacres carving retreat. This is a very special time of the year when we can escape the hot humid weather and enjoy spectacular mountain scenery, enjoy the fellowship of other carvers and learn from excellent instructors. If you haven’t had the opportunity to visit Wildacres you’ve missed out on a great carving experience. Even though most of the classes are filled, Rod Gatlin can add you to his waiting list. You never know if a spot will open up so you could attend.
If any carvers have any items for door prizes they would like to donate for the picnic please let me know by the end of this month.
