Paula Nicks, Owner of Florida Crotch Wood Inc. has agreed to speak.  Florida Crotch Wood is a custom cutting mobile sawmill.  Paul says, “I don’t cut boards. I cut BIG slabs, 60 inches wide x 20 ft. long.  I will bring a power point presentation that will show what can be done with downed city scape and yard trees. All of these trees were headed for the dump or land fill . I will show the trees when we cut them, then show the finished products: tables, benches, bars, cabinets, bowls and sculptures.  Through Q and A I’ll show how The Viable Lumber idea can work for the Gainesville area.  You can go to for a sneak preview.  Hope this helps, and thanks for letting me share.”

 Block Kids Event – February 17th

Our Chapter will be hosting this year’s event at Archer Elementary on February  17,  at 8am. Our teacher will be Christy Thomas with a class made up of 19 2nd and 3rd graders.

We are excited about working with a new group of active minds as they make their construction creation with just l00 Legos.  Our chapter volunteers come away amazed from the experience.  The imagination and creations of these young people are really an experience in itself.
