NEW CLUBHOUSE in 2024:
Most of you know that the last day of our lease at the 3189 Mercier address is April 2024. The KC Woodworkers Guild has signed a new lease for a building in the Crossroads District at 1717 Washington Street. We will be moving in early next year but, first, we need to install some walls, ceiling and electricity. The KC Woodturners 2024 annual dues are going to increase to $150 per household. The new building rent is twice the amount of our present building rent. That is how the economy has changed in the last eight years, since we moved into our present building. Our dues money should get us a nice new shop and commons area. The building is in a safe area in the Crossroads District and we will be looking into taking advantage of the First Friday event at the Crossroads District. To see a photo new clubhouse: Click Here.
