2016 JDRF Meet-A-Machine Day
April 16, 2016

(JDRF - Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation)

The Kamloops Wood Workers Guild were asked if we would like to participate in the Meet-A-Machine Day at the KIB Dance Arbour.

We said, "Sure we will."

And now the rest is history; we spent a whole day there and had demonstrations folks showing some of the things we do - Lathe work, Scroll Saw work, Toy Making, etc.,


We even had two of our members donate to the JDRF's Raffle draw; Russ Cahoon donated a hand-made motorcycle 1/4 scale, and Jerry Gauthier donated a 100-year old wood framed mirror.

Both were gratefully accepted by Jim Moorehouse of the JDRF.
