Cape Atlantic Woodturners Newsletter

Volume #6, Issue #6
Subject: Club Minutes 6/25/2016

We had our first ever "CAW Summer Social." It was a great success! There was plenty of good food and cheer for all. Alan and Jackie did a great job hosting the event and are making plans for next year's festivities.

The grill was fired up early. First we had hotdogs, then chicken and more hotdogs, and finally we had half a cow sections of beef roasting away. All was tasty...

We were led on a tour of Alan's house by past president Ron Befferman. Alan is a master woodworker and has furnished much of his house with his masterpieces. It was obvious to us that woodturning is just one of his many woodworking skills. We also had a tour of Alan's shop. How many people have a carpeted shop????

Alan found the time to do some cleaning in his awesome shop. All the junk he didn't want was lined up for raffle. We raised $49 for the club and took away his merchandise.
