Ron White Brings Treasures to Third Saturday Meeting

All the way from Ellswsorth, Minnesota, Ron White joined our club in 2013 and frequently shows up at our Third Saturday Meetings at the Center for Active Generations.  As those of us present at yesterday's meeting were busy carving faces into old wooden spools saved in times gone by frugal seamstresses, who did not believe in throwing good spools away after the thread was gone, Ron came in with a couple of marvelous bird houses he made to look like old churches.   Ron is an expert carver of loons and large-scale wild life sculptures, but building birdhouses from pieces of scrap wood gives him undeniable pleasure.
