 The fall seminar is scheduled for October 19. We will have two outstanding presenters, Ron Young and Scott Tinker. They will each do a half day program. Both are professional woodworkers and members of the TVW. The event will be at the Cowan Artisan in Cowan.

A lunch will be included. As usual -- the cost will be very affordable and is set at $45.
Bob Addington will be accepting registrations at the next monthly meeting. Thanks to Loyd Ackerman for chairing this event.


The annual UTSI Employee Picnic is scheduled for September 27. In the past, club members have donated items to be used as door prizes. It is a great help to UTSI and provides the club extra exposure. If you are interested in helping with this activity, start getting your items ready. Items can be brought to the September meeting or get them to Richard Gulley before the 27th. Additional information will be given at the September meeting.

This is a great way to thank UTSI for allowing us to use the facilities during our monthly meetings.




The Coffee County Fair demonstrations will be ongoing during September 16 – 21. Efforts are being made to increase the attendance at this activity. The demonstration schedule will be discussed at the next TVW meeting.
Help make this a fun week and a learning experience for all.
