Club Member News

Two members, Robert Christian and Barbara Mann, have carvings in the Senior Artist Showcase 2010. Their carvings were selected for this juried show and are on display in the Senior Center lobby display case until Sept. 24th.

Barbara Mann taught cypress knee carving at the Michigan Woodcarvers Roundup in June, and at the Indiana Woodcarvers Summer Camp in August. Robert Christian braved the Indiana landscape of corn, soybeans and hogs to attend the Indiana event. We handled the heat like pros.
