On Saturday, August 11, we’ll be gathering at Val and Laura Matthews place at 1PM for the annual picnic and tool auction. This is our traditional combined Northwest Corner Woodworkers Association and Northwest Washington Woodturners event. Val and Laura have ample parking and space for this, and all you have to do is show up with a side dish (salad, dessert or whatever), something cool to drink, and a lawn chair or two. Normally, we eat about 3 PM and close the bidding for the auction at around 4 PM. Don’t forget to bring your significant other and something to sit on. The two clubs provide the burgers, hotdogs, brats, fixings, paper plates, plastic ware and napkins.
Also, the drawing for our Toys-for-Tots raffle will be held, and tickets ($2 each or book of four for $5) will still be available for purchase prior to the drawing.
The annual picnic takes the place of our regular monthly meeting: there will be NO regular meeting on Tuesday, August 7th.
