Sauder Village 2010

Archbold, OH is over 3 hrs N. of here. We’ve just attended the Woodcarver’s Show & Sale there at the Sauder Village’s Founder’s Hall for our 6th year. We had the privilege to be honored again with their Award of Excellence which comes with prize money and more importantly a custom plate (dish) created by the Sauder Historic Village’s Potter to commemorate the Award and the Event.  last year, the Senior’s Group of the Centerville Church of Christ (about 20 of us) visited here, enjoyed a wonderful concert featuring the Barber Shop Quartet Singers of America en-masse on stage.  We were thrilled to encounter Jan Nofziger, retiring (nothing “retiring” about her!) Coordinator of Events for Sauder.  She has been the magic in that important role for years.  The new “magic” is her replacement, Dawn Hauter,  who has just reached her first aniversary employed in the Sauder Team and has certainly distinguished herself beautifully this year by orchestrating one of our best shows ever.  Our sincere appreciation and Kudos to the Sauder Family for their hospitality, hands-on involvement and for being “friends” to all of us carver’s; they are unique in the very best possible way.

Happy birding and carving,  Bill
