PROGRAM –The program for tonight will be presented by Kelly Parker a onetime Analytical Chemist now a woodworking craftsman. Kelly approaches her talents as a furniture designer and manufacturer with as much care as if she were reviewing the design of an ATOM BOMB. Every finished product is fully supported by several interim prototypes to insure form and fit. Her program was interesting and gave an insight as to the effort required to bring a piece of furniture to its final finish. We look forward to her return in the future and we thank her for sharing her skills. Don’t forget to help Vice President Greg Hull by keeping a lookout for anything that would be of interest to our members and thank him for his efforts to bring us a program each month.

HELP: AAW SYMPOSIUM (June 22-25 at Bartle Hall)-see Mike Reynolds and volunteer.
