The educational talk will be “Sundials of Wisconsin” by Ed Buc
Message from the President
The last of presentation for the year was given by Bill Galinsky. He presented a detailed history of the maker of the table top cuckoo clock. The owner of this clock is Mike Dempsey and we have been watching it’s restoration over the last couple of years in our chapter meetings. Bill has demonstrated carving replacement parts and finishing techniques to get new wood to match the old wood, an art all of its self. It really turned out well and will be a great addition to Mike’s collection.
The November election was completed with all officers and directors agreeing to serve their same positions for 2 more years. I would also like to thank Mike Dempsey of the election committee for organizing this election. Also a big thanks for all the officers and directors for doing their role making everyone’s job easy and fun.
The membership voted to raise the dues from $20 to $25/year and keep the donuts for all to enjoy at the meetings. Thank you for participating in the vote.
We still need volunteers for the educational talks for 2017, see Harry Schulz or myself with suggestions or volunteers.
