Our next meeting will be on the the 17th of August at Glenn Owen’s shop starting at 7 and going till 4. The trade item will be a bottle opener. The meeting on the 20th of July we had 7 present, 4 members and 3 guests. The weather cooperated and was very nice out with a nice cool breeze. The 3 guests started learning the basics of blacksmithing and did very well. The NEA chapter is progressing with learning the in and outs of blacksmithing, and I want to thank the members for taking the time to learn, progress and share with each other there experience.
