    Not sure I'll be able to make it this year as I'll be busy with some other issues. Here are some photos from the last couple years. More in my gallery in one of the albums if you're interested. It is a great event with lots of happy kids willing to learn something new.

    I will be there. This is always a large turnout with the kids. We would love to have 2 shifts for this event since we usually have some long lines. I would love to see some of the new members come out for this one and get a chance to see what OutReachis all about . Dont worry about never volunteering before......we will guide youand guarentee you will have a great day.

    We've already started getting inquiries if the NCWW group was going.to be there this year. The kids from past years events still remember doing the projects.

    If we don't get more Vollenteers we will have to pass this event. Please HELP! Dirk, Berta, and Chuck cannot do this alone.

    Re: Call for volunteers at the Kawanna's Kids Day Event in Holly Springs

    Folks this is a great event. We would like to get about 8 volunters due to the popularity of this event so we can rotate people. Any one that has not come out to an event or anyone new to NCWW that thinks they would like to try please sign up. I did talk to several people at the workshop yesterday that said they would be there so if you guys could officially respond we would appreciate that. Thanks and be safe in the shop

    Ok, this event is in 16 Days! I don't want to cancel. We NEED volunteers! I would not expect a few people to do this by themselves. I need to know soon.

    Re: Call for volunteers at the Kawanna's Kids Day Event in Holly Springs

    The Kiwanis have 1000 bags to hand out to kids at this event this year.
    Some of the comments received from past years participation of the NCWW are:
    "This was the best event"
    "I got to do something with a power tool"
    "I never knew I could do that"

    The outreach program partnering with the Kiwanis has been a huge success and something the kids look forward to each year.

    I'm proud to be part of this woodworking community and the community programs it's part of. I wish I could volunteer, but I'll have my hands full with managing the event with the committee chair.

    Thank you!
    Kevin in Holly Springs

    I understand Kevin. We know how big this is. I also know that 3 people can not possibly handle this event. It is sad that with so many memebers we struggle getting volunteersfor most events. We will be positive that some folks will step up.

    I didn't say anything sooner because I'm already committed for that weekend. Sorry we have to cancel. There is also a video of this event on our Youtube channel!
