Our Family Gathering will include a Dessert and Appetizer Pitch-In. Members are encouraged to bring a favorite dessert, appetizer, healthy snack, or other savory delight to share. 

We will also hold our Best of Show & Tell Contest.  All members are invited to bring in up to three items to enter in this show.  (More details about the contest will be found in the December newsletter). 

Plan now to join us for this special Family Gathering as we celebrate another successful year working wood, making a difference.


November 2023
Toys of the

Our Toys for the Month of November are The Helicopter and The Puzzle Box.  


Originally drawn up by John Kneebone and later updated by Mike Robards, the Helicopter requires wheels and axles and a template for the propellers.  Kits will be available for this build.  

Meanwhile, the Puzzle Box has a unique key that allows the box to be secured.  Plans and drawings can be found for both of these projects on the CIWW website using the links to the right.  

As usual, build 13, keep one, and return the others in a box marked Category 1 for the Helicopter and  
Category 4 for the Puzzle Box. 

Pick up your templates from Vince Failla at the monthly meeting in the Carpenters Union 301 Hall. Or contact Vince for more information at 317-408-7511

 A few words from our President:


Allow me to welcome you to our website!  We hope you are able to find out about our Club and see opportunities that appeal to you personally.  Our primary purpose, beyond working wood, is to MAKE A DIFFERENCE in our community.  As you browse our website, I feel confident you'll get a better feel for all we're doing to this end.
Of course, the most recent issue we face is the need to adapt to the health crisis that everyone is facing now.  We're grateful for the patience of our members and visitors during this time when all of our routines have been turned upside down.  Unfortunately, uncertainty seems to be the 'new normal' we will all be facing in the coming weeks and months. 

The Board is discussing how we can weather these changes and keep our members engaged.  We'll do our best to listen to you as we reconsider our current events schedule and the impact on long term plans as well. We hope to send out emails as decisions are made.  And we will use this website more to help keep you informed in the future.  If you'd like to be in the loop, become a member and we'll include you in all of those mailings.

Speaking of the website, you will notice that we are going to be working over the next couple weeks to give it a new, updated look and hopefully make it easier to navigate.  Thanks for your patience during this process. 

Please feel free to reach out to myself or any of the Board members if we can help any of our members during this time...we all love to work wood, but we're also about MAKING A DIFFERENCE wherever we can!
