We met at the home of Gary Hammond on January 14, 2013. Four members and five guests were present. Isaac Sadigursky gave a program titled,"Post Refinishing Syndrome." We learned, among other things, that refinishing fumes can aggravate verdigris, that in the days before proper ventilation was used, refinishers preserved their health by drinking a shot of whiskey at the end of the day (it helped clean out the particles they had inhaled), and that water-based refinishing does not last as long. Isaac always gives an interesting and entertaining program.

The next meeting will be held at Dennis Ashly’s store. We will hopefully finish the construction of our website. Our web designer, Evan Austin, will attend and finally get it on the internet as, at least, a work in progress. I am sure we will have to fine tune the information and make certain that the information is factual.
