Cheryl Jones – Featured Carver – The Rochester Woodcarvers Club Board of Directors selected Cheryl Jones as the Featured Carver for the 2018 Annual Show. A featured carver is one who has demonstrated club support and service to the community through their actions. In this case, Cheryl was named featured carver because of her long service to the club, teaching woodcarving
classes through Rochester Community Education and her continued focus in developing her own woodcarving skills. Cheryl had several of her woodcarvings on display during this show. Check out her work!
Raffle carvings – Each year, our Rochester Woodcarvers Club members and friends like the Zumbro Valley Woodturners, donate wonderful items to the club that we can use for our raffle. Because we have such high quality items that attract our visitors who generously purchase raffle tickets for their favorite items, we generate enough revenue so that we can offer free admission to all our guests. Thanks again to all those who donated and supported our raffle!
People’s choice carvings – Active Rochester Woodcarvers Club members have the opportunity to enter a carving into our People’s Choice competition where our club members and show visitors can vote for their favorite carvings. Carvings are returned to the owners at the end of the show. Photos of the top three carvings will be used in promotional materials for the next year’s show. 1st place was awarded to Angie Zeimetz for her “Puppy”, 2nd place went to Carl Beckendorf for his “Bull moose bust”, 3rd place went to Cheryl Jones for her “Koala Bear”. Congratulations to these three, thank you to those participating and a huge thanks to those voting!
Candid photos from the show – Wayne Hendrickson helped out again this year by creating this collection of candid photos of the show. Thanks Wayne, it is great to have these memories of all our friends and visitors!
