Appreciation was expressed to Peter Bogardus, outgoing president, for his outstanding leadership contributions and accomplishments.

The Woodcrafters promote the craft of woodworking as a hobby by the exchange of information about wood, woodworking tools and methods to improve members’ skills and enjoyment by creating with wood. They meet the third Tuesday of the month at Chatelech Secondary School. New members are always welcome. See www.suncoastwood

Being community minded, the guild has made and donated toys and gifts for families, supporting the Sunshine Coast Community Services Society’s Christmas North Pole project. This was made possible with the generous support of major sponsors: Lehigh Materials, Community Forest and Sunshine Coast Regional District.

Other community involvements for the Guild were at the Sunshine Coast Botanical Garden’s Harvest Festival and the Community Forest Wood Expo 2015 at Seaside Centre.
