Monthly newsletter for the Brukner nature Carvers Club
   Nov 2013 Troy, Ohio Vol. XXXVIII Issue 11 From The Prez   While Janie and I were visiting friends in Pennsylvania last month, we took a side trip to the “Hawk Mountain Sanctuary”. Located on a 2,600 acre mountaintop near Reading, Hawk Mountain Sanctuary was founded in 1934 and is the world’s first refuge for birds of prey. There are (8) miles of hiking trails with many scenic overlooks. The day we were there we saw mostly vultures, but did manage to view a few hawks and eventually a Bald Eagle. The visitor center was very nice and even had a display of (16) species of wood carved raptors hanging from the ceiling. The realistic birds were carved from tupelo by a local artist and were completed over a (2) year period. If any of you nature lovers or bird carvers are ever in the Reading, PA area, I highly recommend that you visit Hawk Mountain. Butch Nov   Program   Our speaker this month will be Rob Schmidt talking about the Miami County Park District’s Maple Syrup  program. Another ‘tasty’ program! Think he will have samples? Cookies Cookie volunteers for November are JoAnn Moran and Charlie Cooke. Artistry In Wood The club will have a table this year at AIW. We will be looking for material to show on the table as well as some help in setting up on Friday – I have a date with my granddaughter to meet her at school for a grandparents  breakfast so I plan to be at the hall around 10 AM. Remember, if you want to put something on the table to show and/or sell, bring it by then. I’ve already gotten one volunteer – Thanks Pat! Club Competition  No club competition this month, but still bring in your Show-and-Tell items. Remember, bringing as item to show gets you a ticket in the drawing.
