Roy Wall, Guild President, opened the first meeting of 2024 by welcoming new members and guests. During the meeting, several members offered various tools for sale, with the proceeds going toward the “Tools For Teens” program.

The guild leadership is encouraging members to explore projects beyond their comfort zone—venturing into uncharted territory. To facilitate this, we’re introducing a special table at every meeting this year called ‘Explore More’. This table will serve as a platform to showcase these novel projects during the Show and Tell segment of our guild meetings.

Additionally, Randy Stone introduced a new feature on the guild website in January: an instructional videos page created by our membership. This page features videos from Larry McferrenJay Helland, and others. All guild members can access these videos through the Members Only section of the website.
