    Discussion on Festival of the Trees in November?

    Christmas Party date and location- Date January 5, 2017. Discussion on where we should have it this year, suggestions on a bigger place. Suggestions were Great Dane, Domino Bar, The Bar, Schofield City Hall. Members were going to check on places and bring back info for the next meeting.

    Boys and Girls Club was a great success this summer. They had a great turnout, 69 items were made, 64 total kids. Mike took pictures of all the kids with what they made and printed them and gave all the kids their pictures. One girl was in a wheelchair and they made a stand so the girl could reach the lathe and she turned several things. All the kids were overjoyed with being able to turn and take items home.  Thank You to all that helped with this program!!!! Kudos to you!

    The program at the Woodson on August 6 went very well. A couple of women had the oppurtunity to learn to turn, a couple from Germany really enjoyed it also.

    Picnic went well, the weather held out again this year. About 40 people attended, Guy was there with friends and played great music. Thank you Guy! The tool swap went well, thank you Jim. Thanks to all who helped with the picnec, thank you Deb Bandt for hosting the picnic.

    The Tree Id held at Stevens Point was great, Chris did an excellent job. Stevens Point Campus has a wonderful variety of trees on its campus.

    Update on Tim Mensch- went back to Penn., worked on other side of his liver. He is doing ok.
