Sun Lakes Woodcarvers

Dianne Winenger

We welcome back those returning to enjoy the lovely Arizona sunshine and a myriad of choices for fun and social events offered in Sun Lakes. Welcoming back the wood carvers and inviting those who consider trying this art form is high on the list of who have been working on projects all these last few toasty months. One of our year-round residents, Ed Treadway, has enjoyed completing several caricatures, and you will probably agree these characters are just great.

Ed has been carving for about 15 years in this group. Everyone is ready to share ideas or help when one is puzzled by how to proceed, and Ed finds this beneficial. He also enjoys the gratification when a carving is finished. Ed has completed many and his wife Shirley enjoys his art as she treasures the collection.

If you decide to give this a try, you, too, will find gratification when a project reaches completion and you can admire the finished product. Stop by Thursday morning from 9:00-11:00 a.m. at the Cottonwood Ceramics Room. For more information, call Wally Jasien at 480-895-8281 or Margaret Ryan at 480-802-6535. v
