PROGRAM –President Roy stated that the program for tonight would be presented by Leonard Hastings who comes to us from Wichita, KS . Les is a self taught wood worker who started his career in his dads workshop about the age of nine. He and his fellow wood workers are known throughout the United States for their designs and quality workmanship. Some customers never ask for a bid on a project but in the end are willing to pay the cost. Tonight he will go through the items that he brought with him which includes his MEAN WORK BENCH. Also he has a foldable workbench that you can stick under your arm and head for the next project. He stated that his projects are as small as a toothpick and as large as requiring a good sized crane to move. Les stated he would be willing to help anyone that needs some instruction on their project. Thanks to Les and we look forward to more of his projects in the future .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.
