June Meeting


Kickoff Dinner

  Tuesday, June 19, 7:00 PM


Toys-for-Tots Kick-off Dinner SearStone will host a free buffet dinner for all members and a significant other. The meeting will start at 7:00pm. The meeting will kick off the 2018 Marines Toys for Tots campaign. After the meal we will discuss the different workshops, the process for getting supplies and wood, and answer any questions about how you can help. TWA is looking for a few more good woodworkers to make toys for tots in our area. Can you pickup and deliver wood? Can you cut it into lengths? Do you know how to use any of these: miter saw, tablesaw, scroll saw, bandsaw, drill press, or sander? If you do, we need you! We have fifteen different groups that are making carts, cars, trains, planes, boats, etc. If you are not already volunteering, please consider helping. All of our toys will be given to the Marines at our December meeting at SearStone. Will this be the year we make 5000 toys for needy children in our area?

We need a headcount for the dinner by June 12th. Please let us know at the May meeting (sign up sheet) or send Bob Andrews an email, bandrews1@nc.rr.com, if you are coming and bringing a guest. SearStone is located in Cary at the intersection of High House Road and Davis Drive. 17001 SearStone Drive, Cary, NC 27513 (http://www.searstone.com/index). 

Host: Bob Andrews
