Interested in Woodcarving???

The Southern Meadow woodcarvers meet at the clubhouse every Wednesday between 1:30 and 4:30. They are working on individual projects at this time.

Want to try? No problem! Sit in for a session to see how it goes … everyone helps one another and instructor, Fred Ainge, can help you get started. This group has only been carving since last summer and what they have accomplished is good stuff!

Some of the group also meets on Tuesday evenings at 7 pm on Fred’s front porch (179 Daffodil Drive) just to carve and chat … no class, just friendship and a casual evening.
