    2. Second note from President:  So as of June 2019 I will have held the title of President of Makersmiths for four years.  It's been a lot of work (I spend usually between 20 and 40 hours a week, sometimes more, on such things as hosting Open Houses (also a four year effort, most every Thursday night), keeping up with correspondence that comes in thru the 'contact us' form, or thru email, answering people's questions about membership, who to talk to about such and such, keeping the WildApricot backend up to snuff, twisting people's arms to teach a class, move stuff around, fix this or fix that, running the monthly membership meetings, and on and on.  I will be resigning the role as of June 1st. I'm willing to work with others and show em what I do, what I know, etc. so that they and the organization can continue to grow.
