Each fall the Mid Michigan Woodworker Guild does a fund raiser for a local shelter. I posted a blog about it and wanted to share it with my fellow LJ’s.

Wood Expo 2009

I have been getting ready for the 2009 Wood Expo in Charlotte, mi. It’s a two day event that is hosted by L.L. Johnson’s Lumber. www.theworkbench.com This year it is being held on Sept. 11th and 12th. It’s two days packed full of free demonstrations from tool manufactures to Scott Phillips of The American Woodshop. http://wbgu.org/americanwoodshop/

Again this year the Mid-Michigan Woodworkers Guild www.mmwg.org will be demonstrating various aspects of woodworking including lathe turning, scroll sawing and boat building, just to name a few. We will also be doing a fund raiser for Siren/Eaton shelter. www.sireneatonshelter.org/ The mission of SIREN/Eaton Shelter is to promote the elimination of domestic violence and homelessness by providing temporary housing, support, advocacy, education, and information to the community.

MMWG’s members build the car bodies and kids young and old, glue the wheels on to prepare their cars for the big race. After the big race all involved get to take their new cars home.

That would be great, but I don’t think we dispatch quite that far ;-) so I probably won’t make it this year…
