2020 was a difficult year for many of us as we all know friends or family directly affected by COVID, either through contracting the virus and/or by workplaces being shuttered – but surely the isolation also has hit many very hard. It is more important now than ever to stay part of a community, and I can’t think of a better community for woodturning than AAW. LAW has always been a strong supporter of AAW and encourages membership. Quite frankly, the educational resources alone are worth many times what the cost of two hardback books or a casual night out at dinner will cost, and it lasts all year! Please renew soon and enjoy the ever-growing list of benefits available on the AAW website!
