Past Club Meeting:

December 2017 meeting: Holiday party and gift exchange


Twas two weeks before Christmas, when all through the shop
Not a lathe was creating, not even a top.
The ornaments were hung on the tree with care,
In hopes that the raffle soon would be there.

The turners were seated all eating their bread,
While visions of gift-turnings danced in their head.
When, what to my wondering eyes should appear,
But turned gifts and ornaments, a sight to revere.
