NWA Annual Wood and Tool Auction September 18
We will have a large quantity of lumber so it is likely that the average pile of lumber will be larger than in past years. Lumber species and tools that will be for sale are listed in the September newsletter. In addition, we will have a heavy duty Delta lathe.
We need volunteers to help set up and run the auction. The biggest day will be Wednesday, September 15 when all of the lumber and tools will be brought out from storage onto the main barn floor.
The auction is the main funding source for the Fiske Scholarship Fund. Each year we take in about $8,000 to $10,000 which can then be made available as grants to attend woodworking classes. Donations, including NWA's share of items sold on a shared basis, are tax deductable.
If you have items to donate or if you are willing to help with the auction please contact Warren Stoker (email@example.com, 518-439-6089), Dick Flanders (firstname.lastname@example.org, 518-393-5215 or Charlie Goddard (email@example.com, 518-370-0388).
