Website News

Our website will be undergoing some major changes within the next couple of months. (Hopefully sooner, rather than later.)

The purpose of these changes are to better manage news and resources for our members, class lists, and membership.

The changes include a new navigation structure, and a lot of behind-the scenes stuff that will make the website work on all types of devices. Consequently, the website will change dramatically in some ways.

Member News

Member Don Bladow was highlighted in an Alaska Dispatch News article about his efforts supporting the new garden of Lutheran Church of Hope.  His woodturning was mentioned along with the Bean's Cafe Empty Bowl event.  Check it out at here
