Another month, another report on your club and what's happening.
The slab for the extension is down, and we are in the queue for Ranbuilt to erect the steelwork in the next few weeks. The steel work has been delivered and is securely stored on site. An extraordinary committee meeting is planned for July 5 to come up with a layout plan to present to members at the July general meeting. A condition of our building permit requires us to rationalize our workshop layout before we can get a certificate of occupancy so this plan will be essential to complete the extension project.
Country Hope, the charity we support at Bowna each year have opened a shop in Albury and are calling for donations of woodwork items. If you wish to donate we can send details, as I don't have them here at the moment.
Craft alive is on again this year, July 8 to 10. We need members to help man this event, a roster is on the table at the workshop, or a phone call to Harry Dennis will help you to get involved. From memory, we are the longest serving exhibitor, so we need to keep up the effort. This event is a great way to showcase our club.
The scroll saw weekend is on at the workshop on August 6 and 7, and working bees to be held Saturday afternoon starting June 25 will clean up the kitchen meeting room area as well as the workshop in readiness for this.
We have secured a Bunnings BBQ at Albury on August 21, so please check your calendar and reserve a morning or afternoon session to help man the site. A good BBQ day can raise up to $1000 for club finances, and with the workshop remodeling underway as soon as the shed is up we will need all the cash we can get.
Of special note:
Bob Cox has secured payment of $500 for a carving project. Well done Bob, a timely boost.
Martin Lawley has completed a hall table with the furniture group which is now on sale at the cottage. Thanks Martin.
Cheers for now,
