The regular meetings of the Villages Woodworkers Club are held on the second Tuesday of each month at 7:00 PM in the Washington and Jefferson rooms at Laurel Manor. The next meeting will be February 14, 2012.
Please bring your 'show and tell' item if you have completed something you are proud of and share it with us. We want to know how you did it!!! These items will be displayed for viewing prior to the meeting. We will be taking pictures of the Show and Tell crafts and displaying them in our Gallery on the VWC web site.
We strongly support the 'show-and-tell' part of our meeting. If you've made something recently, or even in the past, and would like to share it with us, please bring it. Sharing is what our Club is about.
The minutes from current and past VWC General Membership and Board of Directors meetings can be found on the Club Documents section.
2011 Membership Fees
One Time Wood Shop Fee:
The one-time (as long as you maintain your membership) Wood Shop fee is applied to the wood shop capital acquisition and improvement fund. This fund is used to purchase new equipment or upgrade current equipment with new features.
Annual Dues: $55.00 (2014)
The annual dues are applied to the on-going operations of the Wood Shop including provision of consumables (glue, sandpaper, etc.), maintenance of equipment and the building interior, and procurement of new hand and small tools. Exterior facility maintenance is provided by the VCDD as part of the long-term tenant agreement between the VCDD and The Villages Woodworker's Club.
In addition all members are required to serve as either a Monitor or Tool Crib Operator for a total of 12 hours per calendar year. Each session of Monitor/Tool Crib consists of four (4) continuous hours (a "shift"), either in the morning or afternoon. These sessions will be scheduled at the time you pay your dues. Training for this duty is required and can be done any Wednesday morning from 9:00 to approximately 10:30. A refresher class is required every other year.
Important General requirement
Because it is s a Club, the life of the organization depends solely on its members and their active degree of involvement in the management and governance. It is hoped - even expected - that the member will take an active interest in the Club and do all they can to help it function productively. It is hoped that you will take it upon yourself to improve your knowledge and skill at woodworking regardless of your entry skills. Basically, you must have a willingness to be involved.
The Wood Shop Building is open from 8:00 AM - 4:00 PM Monday thru Saturday. It will be closed on Sundays and major holidays.
The Wood Shop Building will be closed these days in 2011:
