Yellowstone Woodturners came into being when Floyd “Creeky” Creekmore and Dan Schindler, after a year of “We otta’s”, declared a meeting on January 19, 2000. Seventeen turners from Billings, Hardin, Laurel, and Park City, Montana, as well as Cody and Powell, Wyoming gathered at the Dude Rancher Coffee Shop in Billings, Montana for “show and tell”, laughter, sharing, meeting other woodturners, and promoting woodturning.
Since that original meeting, Yellowstone Woodturners has grown to over 50 members.
The original officers were:
President: Dan Schindler
Vice President: Glenn Hall
Secretary: Milford Eversole aka “Moose”
Treasurer: Floyd Creekmore
Newsletter Editor: Dennis McKnire
The rest, well, is history. . .
Visitors are always welcomed at our meetings – normally held on the second Wednesday of each month at 7:00 P.M. at the Meeting place, Roaring 20’s Auto Club clubhouse, 7400 Grand Avenue, Billings, Mt. Meetings usually consist of a short business meeting followed by a show and tell session of our members’ work and a program of interest to our members. Occasionally we will substitute a longer session of turning and learning among ourselves or a demonstration by a professional wood turner. Our annual membership dues: $25.
Again, all are welcome to come to any of our meetings.
