At our board meeting last week, the board agreed to hold our annual BBQ and picnic. Many thanks to David and Karen Williams who have agreed to once again, host the event.
What is It
This is our annual fund and fun raiser. It is a critical event in keeping NWWT in good financial shape and provides fantastic bargains for our members. Also, it has been some time since we have seen each other face to face so a great opportunity to renew friendships. If you are new to turning and looking for tools or wood to turn, this is your chance to pick up a year’s worth of wood for pennies on the dollar.
How Can You Help
We have generous donations from Rockler and other vendors that we will be contacting but the majority of items are from other members. Below are items that have been popular in the past.
If you are new to the club or have never been to our auction, we start with a great BBQ at around noon. We always appreciate for members to bring a dish to share – fruit, dessert, and side dishes. We will take care of the meat. You will have plenty of time to browse the donations and pick out your target items.
11:00 – Arrival time if you can help set-up or have donations to unload
12:00 – BBQ Open
1:00 - Auction
At around 1:00, after everyone if full, rather than taking a nap we start our auction and again we will have the professional auctioneer as we have had in the past which keeps the show lively and fun.
We hope to see you there!
Note, in the past we have had members who could not make the auction but would like to make a contribution to the club. If you are one of them, you can easily donate online at https://northwestwoodturners.wildapricot.org/Donate . NWWT is a 501-c3 non-profit organization and all donations are tax deductible.
