June 2021 Meeting

Our June meeting will be an outdoor, live gathering at Lou Rudinski's place on June 19th. We will start the meeting at 10:00 am, a little later than usual so that it's warmer outside. Please bring your own coffee or tea beverage and donuts or other snacks. It’s copacetic to bring extra to share, but don’t feel obligated.

On our last Zoom meeting it seemed like pretty much everyone on the call had been vaccinated, so we should be in pretty good shape for the outdoor meeting. That said, given the age and health of some of our membership, please be considerate about masks and social distancing, especially if you have not been vaccinated.

We will have a short business meeting and discuss plans for the August Outing and for resuming in-person meetings in September. After that we will have our usual Show and Tell where you can show your items and make comments about your work. We’ll do this like we used to at our meetings and pass the items around for people to examine (unless you don’t want to have yout item passed around.)

We will not have a demonstration at this meeting. Instead we will use the time to visit and get reacquainted. At our last Zoom meetings most of those in attendance pointed out that Zoom meetings do not really allow for small group conversations, and they missed the opportunity to visit with their friends

If you plan to show items at the meeting, please send John Whitehurst (johnswhitehurst@gmail.com) photos and some basic information about the piece – wood type, dimensions, finish used, etc. This will help him with the newsletter and will also help with putting the items on our web site. Please send your photos to John by June 17th.
