2020.01.Presidents Report

Wishing all member’s a bright and successful new year. Our Xmas Party was a great success and I’m sure that everyone in attendance had an enjoyable evening. Our thanks to Wayne for arranging and booking the venue and overseeing the menu.

Unfinancial Members

Just a reminder to those who may have inadvertently forgotten to pay this year membership fees. Unfinancial members are reminded that they are not covered by the club’s insurance and as a result must not use club equipment or facilities. Group leaders will be given a list of unfinancial members for you to check with if you are unsure.

Pens for Troops.

Paul Kohl has been the push behind the club’s project to provide wooden turned pens for our service men and women serving overseas. We have received donations from Wodonga Men’s Shed, Timber Bits and individual members of the club. A work Session will be held on the 23rd of this month at the club rooms beginning at 9 in the morning. Lunch will be provided. Those intending to attend show list their names on the sheet next to the sign on book in the meeting room to allow for catering. Well done Paul.

Tools for Bushfire Victims

Wodonga Men’s shed have launched a drive for spare garden and house-hold tools to replace those lost in the recent local bushfires. Donations to this cause can be left in the meeting room and we will make sure they are forwarded on to the appropriate group.

Extensions to our Club Rooms.

Following approval in principal from the Wodonga Show Society, we have approached Wodonga Council with regards to extensions to our rooms. Development Applications and plans will be submitted to Council after being displayed in the meeting room once they have bee drafted. This proposal was part of our five-year plan adopted last year.

Woodcrafters Cook Book

Committee member Cheryl has kindly offered to co-ordinate the publication of a Woodcrafters Cook Book which when printed would be on sale at the cottage and to members as part of a club fundraiser. How can you help? If you could make a copy of any of your or your families favourite recipes for cakes, slices, deserts, snacks, meals or casseroles etc and place them with your name in the correspondence box in the meeting room, Cheryl will collect and collate.
