Did you know that April is National Woodworking Month?
Here in Asheville, NC our mayor proclaimed April as woodworking month last year. Below is the text of the proclamation. You can alter it to fit your town, submit it to the mayor’s assistant in your town with a request that the mayor make the proclamation.
In our local paper in April there will be some articles on all the woodworking activities going on in our area: exhibits, workshops, demos, reports on student activities (Skills USA etc.) and more.
Call someone at your local paper and ask them to do a feature on woodworking during the month of April!
You can volunteer to do a woodworking project with kids at a school and the school system’s public relations person can get in touch with the newspaper. For example, in my kids’ elementary school there will be a shavehorse and the kids will work on walking sticks one day in April.
