Change Happens


Change # 1: The meeting room for the November Third Saturday Meeting.  Instead of the usual Arts Room 132, the meeting will be in the Crafts Room, 201.

Change # 2: The annual Christmas Show and Sale at the Park Ridge Mall will not be happening this year.  It's all about the low numbers of interested participants and public demand.

Change # 3: The Sioux Empire Woodcarving Exposition at the Sioux Empire Fair.  A complete revision of how entries are submitted,  judged, and displayed is in order, along with how individual carvers and members of the club may participate as featured artists or demonstrators.

Frank Orthmeyer, July 26, 1923 - October 9, 2014

Our dear friend and loyal member of SDWC, Frank Orthmeyer, passed away this morning.  In addition to serving as our club treasurer for several years, he supported and participated in all our club activities and taught woodcarving classes at the Center for Active Generations.

Though we miss him greatly, his enrichment of our lives will continue on and not be forgotten.
