Hi Everyone. We are essentially two weeks away from our Saturday, May 8th gathering at North Bennet Street School (NBSS) in Boston. Just to remind you, we will begin at 10:00 a.m. and finish between 4:00 and 4:30 p.m. NBSS is located at 31 North Bennet Street in the city’s north end. It sits on the corner of North Bennet and Salem Streets. If you will be using public transportation, it is on the Haymarket stop of the orange line. Here is a link to driving and other directions to NBSS, http://www.nbss.org/about/visitingnbss.aspx. As I mentioned in prior posts, The Government Center Parking garage has a Saturday rate of $10 for the day, as long as there is no Garden event. I checked the Garden calendar today and there is still nothing scheduled for May 8th. Here is the link to the Parking garage site: http://www.governmentcentergarage.com/index.html. If anyone needs additional travel/parking information please send a PM to me or ask via a reply to this post. Please see the prior post http://lumberjocks.com/topics/15717#reply-162533 for the agenda.
I am happy to report that Woodcraft is a sponsor of our event. Specifically, I contacted Aaron Smith, the Manager of the Rhode Island Woodcraft store and he graciously offered a number of items that I will raffle off as prizes. I want to publicly thank Aaron for his willingness to assist us in this endeavor. Aaron, along with his Assistant Manager Jerry and their staff never fail to put the customer first and I value the knowledgeable and friendly customer service I experience in all my dealings with them.
I want to take one last poll of the group to determine who will be in attendance. Here’s what I have to date: Definites: Ryno101, NewPilgrim, Dannymac, Mr. Hudon, Purplev, Ellen, Eli, Chelle, PaulF, LouCarb, Littlecope, Frank Doyle, GroovymanG, JCantin, moonls, tpastore, and Lenny (me). Probables: TeenageWoodworker, Dusty56, StratiA, Langski93. Maybes: Lenzo JohnRB and FredF.
If you wish to update your status please leave a reply. I need to give a final count to Claire and I would like to do so by May 1st. Thank you and I look forward to seeing everyone in two weeks.
