Yesterday Dec 6, 2008 was our toy give away day for the Mason Dixon Woodworkers Club. These are the toys that we made in 2008. Approximately 1300 toys were made and given away. They were given to Charities in the area for them to give to their recipients.

A local newspaper reporter Dan Shortridge and Photographer Gary Emeigh were present to record the day.

I’ll post other pictures but here is a link to the Newspaper Article Click on the related articles to see the print article.

And the Photo’s at the newspaper site.

Now you know why you were elected president.

Don’t you wish you could see all the smiles and joyous looks on the children’s faces on Christmas morning.

Dustyal lives in Lewes DE and he hopefully will show up at the next meeting.

I’m the only LJ’er that is active in the toy making. When Dave’s out of school, he usually goes with me, does a little work and spends a lot of time at the Library.

We usually keep a low profile, We’ve been asked if we would like to go to some of the presentations, but we usually stay away.

I am going to make a delivery of a table and chairs that we only had 15 of this year to the State of Delaware Social Services center where they have family unification of parents with their children that might be in Foster Care. They can only met in a supervised environment. April Wiley who is our State representative for the RSVP (Retired and Senior Volunteer Program) took a bunch of toys to be used in the program but I’m going to bring up the table and chairs and meet the people there.

Karson, your dedication to not only the art of woodworking but also to the community and those in need is truly amazing. Thank you for sharing this wonderful gift and inspiration with us. Hopefully, a piece of this will rub off on all of us.

It’s a great thing you are doing with this group. A lot of children and their parents are going to appreciate this effort long after you are gone!
