We had a nice turnout at our May club meeting. Those attending were: Gerald Bruman, Arthur Bichsel, Shirley Hill, Tom Henry, Doug James, Dick Veitch, Betty Campbell, Bob Broschart, Ron Befferman, and Alan Tasoff.

We had the pleasure of having a visitor Dick Vitch from New Zealand join us He brought a folio of his work and some of his turnings for Show and Tell. Very impressive.

Several members brought in the club project consisting of handles for a cutlery set.
