Presidents Challenge for July
“Trash to Treasures”

Go to one of the “second hand” stores like Savers, Hope Bargain Center, or Goodwill, etc. and pick up a non wood item, “junk.” Maybe you already have one in your garage or shed. Now add it to a turning or add a turning to it.

 

“Family Fun Fair”
Chippewa Valley Museum July 4th

At the June 6th CVWG meeting it was mentioned that the guild will again be represented at the July 4th Chippewa Valley Museum Family Fun Fair. This event is free and outdoors with craft demonstrations and entertainment. This will be the third year for the guild with the hope that the day will be rain free so that we can demonstrate turning along with examples of turning.

Since the event is free the museum has the policy that if demonstrators would like to sell any of their crafts that the proceeds go to the museum. Last year we sold some turnings that raised $100+ for the museum and plan to do so again this year. Therefore I am asking for some low priced donations, tops, bowls, etc. that would be items that might interest children, parents and grandparents. Any items that do not sell can be returned to the donator. Also, if any of you would like to help at the event which runs from 11:00 to 4:00 let me know your interest. We have done it with two members but three would be good, two to talk with the guests and one demonstrating turning. Part of the day would be fine. If interested please contact me.
