Woodcarvers put skills to use to thank the troops

The Eastfork Woodcarvers Club has utilized members’ skills and talents in a way that will say thank you to US Troops overseas. The club will be sending hand carved and hand painted, Christmas ornaments to Afghanistan in time for the Christmas season.

Several months ago the club, which meets at the Union Township Civic Center on the second and fourth Monday of the month, voted unanimously on this project which would require a dedicated team effort.

John Dotson, president of the club made the suggestion to the members several months ago.
