SHOW AND TELL: Although we did have SHOW & TELL the slips were not located and hopefully we can give full credit in the January minutes.


No program was presented in November due to our meeting being held at Dr. Dale Chapman’s new wood shop in LaMonte. In place of a meeting we were treated to a barbeque feast that was hosted by Dr. Dale. We want to thank him for a great meal and we especially enjoyed his new shop.

The December meeting was replaced by the annual Christmas Dinner and once again we were treated to a special meal. This time we were again high on the hog with Bob Pressly’s specialty of PULLED PORK. This was one of our better Christmas meals and we give thanks to all those that participated in years past in preparation of the food and thanks to Bob for tending the fire. I am thinking of no longer eating at home and will look forward to future GUILD meetings.

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.

OFFICERS: All officers for 2015 were re-elected for the 2016 year. We added one more BOARD member Jim Dunlap.

NEXT MEETING –JANUARY 12, 2016 at 7:00p.m.

President Roy closed the meeting at 9:00 p.m..

Respectfully submitted,

Bill Akers  .
