The annual SMLW club dues are $25. This gives the member and the member’s immediate household family members the right to attend all club functions and events. Members also receive a 10% discount on purchases at the Woodcraft Supply Store in Roanoke, VA.
The Blue Ridge Woodturners (BRW) is a club that meets at the Williamson Rd. Masonic Lodge 3025 Pioneer Rd Roanoke, which is about 1 hour from the SMLW meeting place. Because the two clubs are reasonably close together they have a reciprocal agreement which allows members of one club to become associate members of the other for $10 per year. SMLW members who are associate members in the BRW club have access to all the BRW functions and events. Associate membership is optional.
Please make your check payable to SML Woodturners. $25 for annual dues or $35 if you want to include an associate membership in the Blue Ridge Woodturners. New members please add $8.50 for the one-time purchase of a name tag. Please make sure your application shows your name as you want it to appear on your name tag. Bring to next meeting, or mail to:
