Port Townsend School of Woodworking
Preserving the Tradition


Woodworker's Ball 2010

Just to give you a taste of the Woodworker's Ball 2010. We held it at the NW Maritime Center on November 6th, 2010. Arran Stark's Shepherd's Pie and Farmer's Pie (vegetarian) were filling and sublime; a creme brulée to die for; wonderful service. Airstream Traveller were the perfect accompaniment keeping toes tapping and the dancers whirling.

At the Ball we launched ourselves as a non-profit. We're transitioning the operation of the school to "The Port Townsend School of Woodworking and Preservation Trades". The new name reflects our goal of teaching woodworking, historic preservation; and our intention to also become a vocational school.

Our deepest thanks to all our supporters, donors for Silent Auction. I don't have the list at hand - we'll list them fully on the School's website.

Finally a huge thanks to Shelley French who took the notion of going above and beyond to new heights. Thanks Shelley - it was a fantastic night.
