    Your Club is a proud sponsor of   Beads of Courage. We're asking members to turn lidded boxes for these precious children.  
    At our monthly meetings, you can pick up a ceramic "Beads of Courage" insert for the knob on your lidded box.

  • Your Club is a volunteer organization, and it can only be strong and successful if every member does their part in some way. If you enjoy woodturning and enjoy learning new skills and meeting fellow woodturners, then your AWA is a great venue. But, you need to give back to the Club. Help in some way. Volunteer to do demonstration turning at the State Fair; or help move equipment to the meetings; or help clean up after meetings; be a mentor; find some task that you can do, and do it regularly for your Club. It will make you part of the Club instead of just an uninvolved observer. You will be amazed at how much more you enjoy the Club; and your work will be appreciated by fellow members and make the Club stronger and more vibrant.
    • Volunteers needed for setup/takedown
    • Demonstrators at meetings/fairs/events
    • Mentors for new members
