I’d like to thanks all who participated in our July meeting especially our two young visitors from Australia who came with their grandfather, Jim Ethington. The Brandon club has a number of superb craftsmen who share their knowledge with other members. I’d also like to ask you all to keep Vernon in your prayers and wish him a speedy recovery from his accident. This should be a reminder to us all that woodworking, with all our skills, can be a dangerous venture – whether you’re a hobbyist or a professional.
Our August meeting on the 12th at 7:00p.m. will be at the Brandon Junior Women’s Club at 129 N moon. Ave. Vernon was to present the program that evening but because of his injury has had to bow out. I am presently looking for someone to replace Vernon. Your input is appreciated.
Also on Saturday the 16th we will be taking a field trip to Hardwood Limber and Millworks in Lakeland. We will gather at the Women’s Club with a departure time of 9:00 a.m. We are planning to stop for lunch at the Lakeland airport and then a visit to the Phosphate Museum in Mulberry.
