our club makes donations of turned pieces for the Howard County Conservancy. They have an annual fundraiser in May and in the past, members of our club have donated items that they have turned, which are then auctioned off at their event which is called "Wine in the Garden." If you would like to donate a turned piece, please let Doug Bartos know.
You can read more about the Howard County Conservancy at this website. http://www.hcconservancy.org/about-us/ They are a land trust and nature reserve as well as an educator of environmental stewardship and ecosystems. We also do wood turning demonstrations at their fall festival in October.
