I would like to tell you about a group of senior citizens who happen to be the most kind, gentle and sharing people I know. These people are members of the Senior Center in Payson, and they meet every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday in the Carving/Wood Shop at the center.

r

They are learning and teaching woodcarving and painting. Some days are quiet and relaxing and others are bustling with questions and suggestions, but one thing is sure: they are sharing their talents and skills with each other and everyone who walks through the door seems a little interested in what they are doing. One of the carvers makes canes and gives them away to people he can see that need some help walking. So far he has given away over 130 canes. Another group decided to cheer up people the Veterans Home in Payson at Christmastime by creating hand-carved and painted ornaments to decorate one of their Christmas trees. They started around April of this year and have made over 100 ornaments so far.

r

I have had the privilege of carving with them for two years and it is always joyful. We compare our work with each other and share new ideas.

r

The next item they have on their calendar is the Utah Valley Woodcarving Club Show in October in Spanish Fork. Many of them will participate in the show by entering projects they have carved as well as working to help set up the show and make it successful. It takes a lot of hours and work to do this, but these guys and gals love to participate and see the joy on your faces when you come to see their projects. In the past, the show has had 150 to 200 entries and many displays and fun things to see and do.

r

Please come and join us at the Payson Senior Center and participate in the Utah Valley Woodcarving Club Show by entering a carving or coming to see others carvings.

r

The 10th Annual Woodcarving Show will be held at the Veterans Memorial Building, 400 N. Main, Payson, on Friday, Oct. 16, from noon to 7 p.m. and on Saturday, Oct. 17, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Registration and set up will be conducted on Thursday, Oct. 15; there will be no public viewing on this day. Admission is $3 for adults and free for children 10 and under when they are accompanied by an adult. Scouts and leaders can attend free of charge if they are wearing a Scout uniform.
