October 2017 Meeting     October 18, 2017 at 7:00PM


Welcome and announcements by Bob Zrebiec, President

Demonstration by Doug Davis "Turning an Ornament"

  Doug is a member of Keystone Woodturners, he has demonstrated several times.  His demonstrations are always entertaining and informative.  

Show and Tell
Bring in your latest turned items and tells the members about it.  Wood type, finish, and challenges you had with the piece.   We all enjoy seeing our members turned items and ideas to try.
Have something that you no longer need, use or just cluttering up your shop?   Bring it in for the raffle.  Surely, someone will see it of value the way you once did.   Remember, the raffle helps support the club with the money raised.


Community Service Project Committee (Giving Back) Update and a "Thank You" Letter.

In September, the Committee will donate items to Neighborhood League of Shops


The club-member donated items will be placed in the Neighborhood League downtown Wayne shop with proceeds going to the designated non-profit organizations they support.

The mission of the Neighborhood League of Shops is to improve the quality of life in our community by providing grants to local non-profit organizations that focus on health and social services using monies generated through their shops as well as other sources of revenue. 

Here is a partial list of the non-profit organizations that benefit from the Neighborhood League of Shops:



As a follow-up to our Beads of Courage donation to A. I. DuPont Children's Hospital.  Mrs. Kleiv sent this letter to Bernie Brownstein.  She described her son's ongoing treatment and how he proudly displays his Beads of Courage Box with his 1,100 beads.   He still has another year of treatment.  Our contributions to programs like the Beads of Courage Project and the others we have donated our work to have long-reaching and beneficial impacts that we might not stop to consider.
