October 2015 River Valley Chapter Meeting


The River Valley’s October meeting was held at the Fall Festival in Greenwood AR on October 3rd.

This is the last meeting that I will have the honor of serving as secretary. I has been a pleasure to serve alongside Jerry Holmes and assist in the development of the chapter from its inception last January.

I have taken a position with ArcelorMittal in Shelby OH.

It was a great day for the meeting and we had a small crowd of members in attendance. Along with the demonstration forge set up by the chapter, Dan Mowry was present with his trailer. We all had a great time of forging and fellowship all day. Several visitors stopped by to watch the demonstrations and f few expressed interest in joining the organization.

Todd Rowland will fill my position as secretary starting in November. Let all welcome him in his new role.

The next meeting will be held at Dallas Roberson’s shop in Lavaca on November 7th, and the trade item will be a meat fork. The December meeting will be held at Gary Braswell’s in Lavaca on December 5th.

The December trade item is a candy cane that showcases your favorite blacksmithing twist.
