The RGVW Carvers show and Rally committee and our Board of directors have decided to Cancel the 2021 Show and Rally.

Rio Grande Valley Woodcarvers
2021 Update and Dues Request

January 30, 2021

As you know, we have had to cancel our Carving Show, as well as the Rally on the Rio. We may not be able to meet on Thursdays this winter and spring. The annual meeting and election will be scheduled if possible.

We have negotiated with the Nomad Shrine Club to forward our paid rent for this season’s Thursday meetings to the 2021-22 season. We did the same with the first half of the rent for the Show and Rally.

The planning for the 2022 Carving Show and the Rally on the Rio is underway. The Carving Show will be January 14th and 15th 2022. The Rally will be January 17th-22, 2022. The committee is starting to send out registrations to our 2020/2021 vendors and Instructors.

Even though we are not having any meetings at this time, the Club is actively planning for when the pandemic is over and we can get back to a somewhat normal life.

The E-board would like to ask each member to consider paying this seasons dues. This will help the Club stay on top of expenses and also be ready to hit the ground running when we can meet and resume all of our activities again.

There are up front expenses for the Carving Show and the Rally as well as fixed expenses that we have to meet. We have a decent balance in the treasury, but by maintaining our dues income, we can insure that the club continues to be fiscally responsible.

As a reminder, dues are $15.00 for individual membership. The e-board voted to have a family membership for $20.00. If you choose not to pay dues this season since there will likely be little if any activity, we understand. If you would like to make a donation to help make up for the loss of 50/50 income, it would be appreciated.

We are working with our Webmaster, Dee Halbrook, to set up for us to pay online. If you would rather send a check, you can send it to:
                                                                 Rio Grande Valley Woodcarvers
                                                                       P.O. Box 4918
                                                                 Palmview, TX 78573
Please make your check out to: RGVWoodcarvers

Thank you for your understanding and patience,

Rio Grande Valley Woodcarvers
