This is the final message before our August meeting next Saturday at Thomas Jefferson's Poplar Forest in Lynchburg.  If you have NOT already told me you are planning to attend please do so not later than Monday, August 17. 

It is especially important that we know if you plan to join us for dinner after the meeting.  We have to make a firm reservation. Lynchburg will be full of families bringing kids back to several colleges in town that day. 

Below is the schedule for the day.  We currently have almost 30 people registered and we are looking forward to a great meeting.  If you can, bring a project, tool, or jig to share with the group.  Cost for the day is $25 per person, payable at the door. 

Have a good week and we'll see you next Saturday!
