Message from the President
2017 was quite the year! Starting in May through the end of the year I had major health issues which had me in bed for months at a time. The Board jumped into action and keep the LSWA ship afloat. In particular Gary Barnes. Gary agreed to accept the emergency position of V/P & President in my absence. Without his Leadership and the support of the Board our Club would have suffered greatly. Instead, the Club has grown and become even better!!!!! Thank you Gary.....!
From our first founders meeting, the LSWA has grown to a group of 60 enthusiastic woodworkers. Our membership ranges from professional to hobby woodturners, woodcarvers, woodworkers and others interested in different types of woodworking.
Our educational events include monthly meetings and special events with woodturning, or woodworking demonstrations that are typically held on the fourth Saturday of each month, at a local Woodcraft store located at FM 1960 and I-45 North.
Members are always encouraged to discuss their current and completed projects at each meeting during the "Show and Tell" portion of the meeting. We also participate in special public exhibitions and local art and craft shows.
We invite you to join us at our next meeting as our guest. Meeting location and additional information can be found by clicking the calendar button on the left of your screen.
