Happy New Year Everyone!I hope you all have had a good holiday and were able to spend some quality time with family and friends. Now that the holiday season is over it is time to direct our attention to our wood carving show. First, I would encourage you to register for the Show and at the same time, pay dues for 2019. Second, it’s time to get your carvings ready for the Show. Finally, please volunteer to help. We need your time and talents to make this project a success.
Bob Warner has been selling raffle tickets and he is encouraging everyone to buy early and often. Bubba Mullis is selling the John C. Campbell raffle tickets. I would like to see each member buy/sell at least 5 tickets. The John C. Campbell Folk School has been around for over 90 years teaching folk arts and crafts. There is something at the school for everyone. If you ever wanted to start a hobby or improve your skills, this is the place to do it. No matter what your interests are they will probably have a class with outstanding instructors.
It is my distinct pleasure and honor to announce to the Charlotte Woodcarvers Club that the Board of Directors have approved an Honorary Lifetime Member Award to Bill Dominick. Bill is a founding member and has been instrumental in helping make this club successful. Without his hard work, dedication and leadership this club would not be what it is today. Congratulations Bill!!
Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress; working together is success.Hoping to see everyone at the Show!
