The last of program for the year will be by Bill Galinski. He will make a presentation on the restoration of Mike Dempsey’s cuckoo clock we have been watching over the last couple of years. If you remember this is the clock he has demonstrated carving and finishing a while back.
The board has reviewed our finances for the upcoming 2017 calendar year, and we are anticipating a monetary short fall. Our expenses are very few, Norway House rental, insurance, coffee, fruit and donuts. After much discussion we came up with 2 alternatives as follows:
- Raise dues from $20 to $25 per year
- Eliminate the “free” donuts
Either option should balance our chapter’s budget in 2017. Please let Craig White know your individual thoughts (NAWCC.Chapter47@gmail.com) on which option you would prefer, or let our Treasurer, DannO know at the door at next meeting.
Our Secretary Ed Buc was interviewed on radio station WUWM for a segment they did on a local clock tower. Hear the story here. Read more on this clock tower in Ed’s Spot a Clock article on this clock tower.
The November meeting will also be the time that officers and directors election will be held. This election occurs every 2 years. Please contact Mike Dempsey of the election committee if you are interested in helping out running the chapter. Officer’s roles are President, Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer. The director’s duties are primary in attending short meetings following some of normal chapter meetings.
