July Meeting - SDFWA Toy Program
At this month’s meeting members of the Toy Program will describe new opportunities for you to make wooden toys for your children, grandchildren, and friends, and for donation to local charities.
Roger Solheid, Chair of the Toy Program will cover how members can obtain plans for making toys and a kit for building a toy. Jim Vitale, who heads up the pro-bono efforts of the SDFWA, will explain who gets the toys made for donation. Jim Strawn will present information about courses on toy building that will be offered at the new shop, and Steve Naiman, Charlie Bierman and Charlie Pinkus will talk about the book that is being prepared to help you in your toy making endeavors.
Over 40 different types of toys made by members of the SDFWA since the inception of the toy program some 25 years ago will be on display, along with an example of the kit of supplies that the Program loans to members who want to make multiple copies of a toy in their own shop for donation by the SDFWA.
The tool raffle is now held at the meeting break, and we are using a new procedure where you can allocate your tickets towards one or more specific raffle prizes.
YOU REALLY DON'T WANT TO MISS IT!
REMEMBER! Money collected for the raffle goes toward the purchase of bigger and better prizes next meeting!!!
Ticket Sales start at 6:30, and only at the meeting. Come early and support this fun event. Every penny supports the purchase of prizes. More support means more and better prizes. Compare that to the odds on any other raffle you know of.
Bring your latest project and show us what you've been up to.
