Pens for Troops

The Villages Woodworkers Club is part of a nation-wide effort to support our Armed Forces.  VWC members spend every third Tuesday turning square wooden blanks into retractable pens which are donated for distribution to our troops.

Summer has come and gone, but our “Pens for Troops” team kept turning out product. Elliot Schantz and team produced 10 pens at their 9/23/19 gathering and YTD have turned 536 pens bringing our total for this project to 1304.

Elliot and his fellow turners scheduled an event to celebrate Veterans Day by meeting on Monday 11/11/19, and Tuesday 11/20/19 to produce pens for the troops. The goal was 75 pens and the event was considered a success.
