How You Can Help

New England Woodcarvers is a nonprofit organization depending

entirely on volunteers to keep it running. The organization is

fortunate to have a group of dedicated people who serve on the

Board of Directors, lead and work on various committees, and serve

as Area Representatives, but, they cannot do it all! The club needs your

expertise and help. Engaged members make the club better for all.

 

Be a Leader

Look at the board positions, committees and Area

Representative positions on the NEWC Leadership list.

Everyone has some ability to serve on a committee or perhaps

run for a board position. Talk to a board member or committee

chairperson to learn how you can help.

 

Membership Meetings

  • Lead a carving project.

  • Contribute some snack foods for the refreshment table (please remove calories first).

  • Contribute items for the meeting auction.

  • Stick around to help clean up after the meeting.

  • Talk to Paul Ward to suggest that outstanding carver/craft person you know as a guest speaker.

 

Spirit of Wood Show

Our annual show requires lots of people to make it a success.

You can help too! It's easy!

  • Enter a piece into the competition. Regardless of your skill level put your best work in the show and talk to the judges to learn what you can do to improve. You will be helping NEWC and increasing your skills at the same time.

  • Donate or help locate items for the bucket raffle.

  • Help move tables and chairs.

  • Transport materials from our storage area to the show. 

  • Set up the competition area to display entries.

  • Judge the competition. Your experience can play a key role.

  • Talk to your carving group about setting up a table at the show to highlight your group's work.

  • Teach a one hour seminar on sharpening, photographing your carvings, carving and painting tips, selling your carvings, etc.

 

Tree of Hope

  • Carve ornaments; we can always use more.

  • Talk to Bob Landry about helping at shows around New England to sell ornaments and promote the program.

 

If not you, then who?

Get engaged, and you will be richer for it.
