Program Notes

May 16: Carving of the Month with Lee Roberts. Lee has two life-size hummingbirds for us to carve. One is flying with the tail up and the other hovering with the tall down. Please sign up in advance with Lee for which and how many cutouts you want at $4 each. The hummingbirds are suitable for ornaments or can be placed in a habitat such as feeding at a flower.

Sept. 19: Carving of the Month with Robert Christian. Robert has several cowboy boot patterns of different styles and sizes for you to choose from. Sign ups will take place in advance for the exact cutouts you want.

Summer Schedule: We traditionally meet every other week during the summer which is also loaded with holidays. Keep this schedule so you will know which Monday nights we meet.

Weekend Workshops: Your officers are attempting to identify a guest instructor of general interest for next February. Please give your suggestions to Robert or any officer. Also, we usually do a Saturday workshop at Lake Ella. Do you have suggestions for what you would like to do in that workshop?

Dues Are Due!

Dues were due on April 1st. If you have not paid your dues, a membership registration form is enclosed for your use. Just fill it out, put it in an envelope with a check for the correct amount, and bring it to the next meeting or mail it to Jim DeLong, 2205 Monticello Drive, Tallahassee, FL 32303.

If you do not renew your membership, you will not appear on the membership list. As a result you will not receive future newsletters or be eligible to participate in workshops at the member pricing. Please renew today.
