Next Club General Meeting

We will not hold our May General Meeting.

The Des Moines Woodworkers Board has decided to cancel all Club activities planned for April and May due to the COVID-19 outbreak. Future activities will be evaluated this summer and as the State of Iowa updates their guidance for large group assemblies.

Stay safe at home and get some woodworking done, everyone!
