The February meeting was our annual tool auction. Auctioneer Denny did his usual outstanding job.


We then had time for Paul Anderson to present a slide show of his miniature  rooms and the model tug boat he made. The detail was incredible! He even showed a video of the boat running with a camera inside so it looked like you were riding along. Lots of fun.
