Mount Vernon Children’s Festival

Mount Vernon Children’s Festival is an annual celebration for area children. It takes place on the 3rd Saturday in July. Summer will be in full swing in the Skagit Valley. Consequently, the festival will be a wonderful way to enjoy another perfect day with some really enjoyable folks.

The festival draws a variety of vendors and display booths. However, the top turning demonstration by Northwest Washington Woodturners is generally the most popular attraction! To make this happen, we need MANY club volunteers to turn tops to give to the children!

This is always a great event that also provides an opportunity for the club to promote the craft and art of wood turning. Thank you in advance for your help and involvement.

Annual Summertime Potluck Picnic!

There’s no scheduled meeting or presentation this month because it’s time for our Annual Summertime Potluck Picnic! Always a fun event, this will include (as usual) a tool sale and silent auction. If you have not been before, see the July newsletter for directions to get to Val & Laura Matthews’ place.

Bring your significant other, a side dish (salad, dessert, etc.), something cool to drink, and something to sit on. The club will provide the main course, soft drinks, water, paper plates, plastic ware, napkins. Lunch is normally served around 3pm.
