JUST AN UPDATE, I SPOKE TO KELVIN POTTER AT RAVEN FARM, THE SAWYER. HE WILL BE EXPECTING A GROUP OF US AROUND 3:30pm – 4:30pm. THIS IS FOR ANYONE INTERESTED IN GETTING SOME FINE LUMBER AT SOME CHEAP PRICES. HE WAS VERY NICE THE LAST VISIT SHOWING US HIS OPERATION, EVEN INVITING US INTO HIS HOME TO SHOW US WHAT HE HAD BUILT WITH THE WOOD HE HAD CUT, DRIED AND USED TO MAKE HIS HOME. NEEDLESS TO SAY MOST OF US WERE SPEECHLESS AT THE BEAUTY OF HIS HOME AND GRACIOUSNESS OF OUR HOST. HE HAS A WIDE VARIETY OF WOODS NATIVE TO MICHIGAN IN DIFFERENT SELECTIONS, OF COURSE YOU CAN PICK UP SOME SECONDS VERY CHEAP IF YOU ARE WILLING TO DO A LITTLE WORK ON THE WOOD. HOPE TO SEE YOU THERE, AND LOOKING FORWARD TO IT. JOCKMIKE2 – MIKE WURM, ANY QUESTIONS OR CONCERNS YOU CAN CALL ME AT

Yes, Mike, I too second the thanks to Keith. It’s great that the Mid Michigan Woodworkers Guild is providing the drinks, too. This is looking to be a great get-together.

-- I've never seen a tree that I wouldn't like to repurpose into a project. I love the smell of wood in the morning - it smells like victory.

I am looking forward to the get together. I do have to say, though, that 1am seems a little early ;)

Wish You all could come, wouldn’t that be something, Mark DeCou, Dick Cain, Karson, Gary K, A1Jim, Douglas Bordner and the whole gang filling a football stadium. Wow! It’d be like Woodstock, without Jimi Hendrix, Janice Joplin, and Crosby, from CSN and Young of course, plus quite a few others. LOL. “WE’RE GONNA HAVE A GOOD TIME TONIGHT, CELEBRATION, COME ON!” WHO SANG THAT, SLY, AND THE FAMILY STONE?
DON’T FORGET YOUR PIECE OF LUMBER TO SWAP!!! DAVID, THEN COME AT 2pm, WHATEVER MAKES YOU HAPPY. I JUST THOUGHT WITH THE SHORT DAYLIGHT HOURS AND OUR TRIP TO THE SAWYERS WE SHOULD START FAIRLY EARLY AND GET TO THE SAWYER BEFORE IT GETS DARK. WE CAN DO THE WOODSWAP AS THE LAST THING.

You are welcome.
I feel fortunate to be part of this group and happy that I can help.
I mentioned this event at the meeting last night and I think that some of the members will attend.
Just as a reminder… Dewitt Memorial Building
315 W Washington St
Dewitt, MI 48820

Got to go and dig up a few items for the swap and something for show & tell.

I was just joking around Mike. I think you meant 1pm and that works for me. When I saw the 1am on the title, I pictured us all out in the middle of the night in our PJs.
