PROGRAM –President Roy introduced the presenters for tonight who are none other than our LEES SUMMIT NORTH students and their teachers. This is the school who is the primary recipient of our TOOLS FOR TEENS project. It was evident by the many wood working projects that were presented that the LSWG can be proud that we support such a talented group of students. Wood working projects are an opportunity for one to not only get familiar with the machines and tools in their shop but to also expand on the other subjects taught that may help you figure out that difficult angle cut. Once again we thank the teachers for passing on their skills and knowledge so we can be the ones to enjoy the fruits. 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.
