Due to the outbreak of COVID-19 in the Seattle area, and resultant restrictions on public meetings, the Seattle Woodturners organization has suspended all group activities that involve physically gathering together, including membership meetings, sawdust sessions and Wood Rat events. Instead, we will be hosting our monthly meetings virtually, using the Zoom teleconferencing capability. In addition, special virtual events may be held as possible. Details will be listed on the calendar page on this website, in the monthly newsletter, in the club Facebook group and in emails to members.
Dear Seattle Woodturners Member,
Your Board wishes to announce the resignation of Jim Kief as President of our club as of 1st May 2020. His resignation is due to personal circumstances. We wish to publicly thank him for his services to the board and club and wish him well.
The role of President has been filled by Russ Prior, our superb Chief Woodrat.
In accordance with club by-laws, Russ was appointed as President by a unanimous vote of the Board at a special meeting on Wednesday, May 13th 2020.
We sincerely thank Russ for his willingness to take on this task and ask that you give him your full support in sustaining the club.
Wishing you all well,
