Welcome to the Cedar Valley Woodcarvers
We meet on the second Tuesday of each month at American Legion Post 298 at 625 31st Street in Marion at 7 p.m. and you are cordially invited to come see what we do and how we do it. Our meetings last about a half hour and are followed by classes taught by our members. We finish about 9 or so. Here are some things from those classes and others just to show off...
At our July meeting we awarded canes to 3 more deserving veterans. Our first goal is looking for Purple Heart vets, followed by WWII vets.
Our March 2015 show was a success. The new
venue gave better parking and easier handicapped access. The
weather was good and we had fun at it. We gave canes to
four veterans at the show.
On Saturday to Wayne Schilling and George Milliagn
On Sunday to Paul Croy and Art Drtina
The pictures from our 2015 show are up on the photo site.
