       Announcements

Notice: Dan Boone has cancelled the 2018 Boone's Pasture Party
As we are getting this news fairly late, please tell anyone that you know who might be going.



Hello Folks,

We have known for some time that Phil’s wife Candee has been dealing with a serious health issue, but Phil has asked for privacy while he and Candee are dealing with this. As a result we have not sent out much information. Given his current priorities, he does not have time to answer emails and phone messages. Please respect this request.

As you may have seen on facebook, Phil is trying to sell some of his larger projects that he had been keeping for himself including a very large and detailed chest and his throne. This is to help with the medical bills.

We discussed among the board members something meaningful that could be done by the guild to help and Alex came up with the go-fund-me page. I am sure any donation you can make will be helpful.

(click here) Thank you Phil and Candee

I hope to see you around, and with happier news,

Eric



NEW! 2018 Spring Fling invites and registration forms can be found below. We have the mailings going out today and tomorrow as well.

Also:

The number four forge is out of order pending repairs.

The nature center has requested that we not use the driveway and parking lot for the time being due to the annual frog and salamander migration to the pond. Those with handicap plates and heavy loads may still use the parking lot.
