Monthly Meeting - Mike Lanahan
Beads of Courage Boxes
Children facing serious medical procedures are give a string of beads that spell out their name. For each major medical procedure (e.g. Chemo) they face they are given a “Bead of Courage”. The children need boxes to hold their beads, thats were wood turners come in, we make boxes. More information at beadsofcourage.org. B of C also collaborates with the AAW and guidelines for turned boxes can be found here:
Learn how to make a Beads of Courage Box using a decorated piece of PVC pipe and turned tops and bottoms. Materials for the boxes will be available at the meeting.
Monthly meetings include a display of members turned items and a raffle. Guest and members of the public are always welcome.
