Ron Ginger (in the checkered shirt) just returned from the second annual CNC Workshop at Cardinal Engineering in Illinois.  He brought back a number of leadscrew sets and other goodies and had a trunk sale in the parking lot before the meeting.  That would be a "boot" sale for our British cousins.

PICT0029.JPG (63429 bytes) President Norm Jones (R) presents a $1,000 check to a representative of the Charles River Museum of Industry.  The museum allows us use of the meeting room at no cost during the year.  Our annual show (third Saturday of February) brings many visitors to the museum and when our treasury starts getting out of hand we are pleased to present the museum a token of our appreciation for all they do for us.
