News & Views Issue 91: Turn for Troops

Comments (0)

This article is from Issue 91 of Woodcraft Magazine.

We encourage volunteer woodturners to support the troops this Veterans Day weekend, November 9-10, for Woodcraft’s 16th annual Turn for Troops. Last year’s event, which took place at Woodcraft stores all over the country, produced 17,097 unique pens. These gifts were sent to active duty or recovering military personnel around the globe. Since the program’s inception, volunteers have crafted 175,224 pens for the troops. Woodcraft president Jack Bigger said, “Our brothers and sisters in uniform who serve for all of us will benefit by knowing someone else cares about the sacrifices they make.”

No experience is necessary, all materials are provided, and all ages are welcome (minors should be accompanied by an adult). Check your local Woodcraft store for event dates and times or visit
