For New England members who aren't able to spend a three-day weekend with us at our annual conference in Burlington, Vermont, from October 14-16, you are welcome to visit our new headquarters and education facility on Monday, October 17 in southwest New Hampshire (Alstead). We look forward to welcoming conference attendees as well to this post-conference gathering.
Starting at 10:30 a.m, the open house includes a tour of the facility - a 10,000 square-foot manufacturing shop and office formerly operated by Bensonwood - followed by a lunch hosted by Scott and Judith Northcott at the nearby Northcott Wood Turning. Since the 1970s, the Northcotts have been producing pegs and trunnels for timber frames, bridges, and boats at their facility in Walpole. We are grateful to them for opening their doors to friends and visitors.
This open house will provide an opportunity for you to meet with members of the Guild's Board of Directors, including those who live west of the Mississippi, in a casual and more intimate setting.
We look forward to seeing you there!
Eric Howard, Executive Director
Allison Aurand, Communications Director
Cate McAnulty, Special Projects Director
Gretchen Snow, Business Manager
Steve Lawrence, Community Building Projects Director
