March General Meeting:

Join us at 10am, in welcoming local Artisan: Geoff Wymer: who will share with us how he has blended his two favorite passions: woodworking and music!  Learn how from meager beginnings with the gift of an X-acto knife kit he began whittling everything in sight!  He developed his techniques and began crafting various stringed instruments including Cigar Box Guitars and a favorite “Violele” (don’t know what that is?!? Come to the meeting and find out!)
