Great Lakes Fall 2016 meeting- full agenda
« on: September 25, 2016, 03:00:57 PM »
The Great Lakes Chapter fall meeting has been set for Saturday and Sunday, October 22 and 23, 2016 at the Livonia Senior Center in Livonia, Michigan.

This SAPFM meeting is open to all SAPFM dues paying members and their guests.

This meeting will include a paid presentation on Saturday. Tony Kubalak will be presenting various carving techniques of 18th century furniture elements. The price will be $50 per person which includes our usual $5 fee for the room and snacks.

We will be having lunch Saturday at the restaurant next door, Sam’s Place.

We have reservations for dinner at the Rusty Bucket in Northville to follow the meeting Saturday night.

The "show and tell" session has been moved to Sunday, however, for members planning to attend both days, you can still bring your items to share Saturday. There will be some time before the presentation to informally discuss your projects. And of course, if anyone has any tools they wish to sell, this can happen at any time there is a break in the meeting.

 On Sunday, I am in need of a volunteer to give a 30 minute presentation. If interested please send me a message in the next week or so.

Anyone wishing to attend, please RSVP with me by October 17 so that we may have a badge for you or your guest. If you have already responded to the previous email regarding this presentation, you do not need to RSVP again.
