JDRF Meet-A-Machine Day
April 16, 2016
(JDRF - Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation)
The Kamloops Wood Workers Guild were asked if we
would like to participate in the Meet-A-Machine Day at the KIB Dance
We said, "Sure we will."
And now the rest is history; we spent a whole day there and had demonstrations folks showing some of the things we do - Lathe work, Scroll Saw work, Toy Making, etc.,
We even had two of our members donate to the JDRF's
Raffle draw; Russ Cahoon donated a hand-made motorcycle 1/4 scale,
and Jerry Gauthier donated a 100-year old wood framed mirror.
Both were gratefully accepted by Jim Moorehouse of the JDRF.
