From the desk of President Kevin Bassett (November 2023)

Ladies and Gentlemen,

The holidays are near and if you are like me, it’s a mad scramble to get things made. Christmas decorations, presents and on and on. This month’s demonstrator is Charlie Tucker. He will show us some of his favorite holiday items to make. Also, on the near horizon is the Holiday Party at Abboca’s Italian Grill. That will be on Saturday December 2nd from 12- 3 PM. Come and enjoy a great buffet of Abocca’s great food. The raffle will include a great batch of tools and wood, plus the Live Auction of member made turned items. I’m really looking forward to this event and I hope you are as well. Tickets are available on the web site.

Last month we we’re treated to a day of class and a great demo by our friend from Australia, Simon Begg. The German Ring demo was fantastic and his demo piece will be in the Live Auction along with a platter he made during our class.

Elections are this month. Before Charlie’s demonstration we will convene the Annual DAW business meeting. We will accept nominations from the floor for each of the four executive director positions. Then hold the election. The business meeting will be closed, and Charlies Demo can commence. We are always welcome to your involvement in the club leadership. I encourage you to give us your thoughts and ideas on what we can do to make the club better.

If you have a nice piece and are willing to donate it, I would love to auction it to benefit DAW!

I hope you all have a great holiday season and I look forward to seeing all of you at our next meeting and at the Holiday Party.

Kevin Bassett
