Review for TAMARACK FOUNDATION INC, Charleston, WV, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am a retired construction worker. In '96 I was the forman on the roofing crew and was there at the dedication of Tamarack. At that time I jurried into Tamarack and sold my turnings as a hobby. In '02 my last job was forman on the new conference center there. My health forced early retirement and turning was a primary income. I did small craft shows and sold everything I made to my buyer Megan Benton. Megan was always there to cirtique,help my wife Mary in ant way and uplift me. She introduced me to the folks at the foudation. The foundation opened doors that made it possible to attend shows and symposiums. In '09 I had surgery that was not covered by my Samaraton share plan. Through the foundation grant I was able to meet my needs. This year I am looking forward to serving my 5th yr. as president of the mountaineer woodturners, teaching 5 exploratis classes for the state and shareing every thing I konw about turning. Thanks to Tamarack and the foundation
