As the year winds down and we prepare to store things for the winter and push a new project in the shop, I’m reminded of family more so than normal because my little family has grown by one. We welcomed Cyrus James into the world Oct 16th. To say I’m a proud Dad would be a huge understatement, but as I was alluding to, family becomes the focus during this Thanksgiving and Christmas season. I’d just like to say to everyone involved in this organization, that as we become extended family more so than just friends at these events and meetings during the year, we should all be a little more thankful that we can be like family and enjoy these times together.
We have some things coming up for next year to discuss at our meeting in December. We will be discussing meeting places and times, so if you’d be willing to host a future meeting, we would love the opportunity to meet and view some collections. The board will be electing new officers for the 2024 calendar in December as well. We’d like to thank everyone that is serving, has served or possibly will serve in the future. We need volunteers and willing hands to help us move forward. The planter restoration will get wrapped up by spring, so we need to discuss some possible showings and the plan of action to place it at the Heritage Barn at the Wilson County Fairgrounds/TN State Fair.
I would like to invite everyone to join us in Cookeville if you are able and if not, I wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year.
