After a three-year hiatus, toys will be available to the public again.  
Hot Springs Village Woodworker Club’s major project each year is making about 400 toys to be given to local agencies as Christmas gifts for children.
This toy distribution takes place at the club’s November meeting. At the meeting, the club hears from presenters for each organization about their programs and facilities for caring for children.  
The meeting will be Wednesday, Nov. 14 in the Ouachita Activities Building.  
This would be a good time for anyone interested to come and hear about the agencies providing care to children in the local counties.  
The toys are matched to the age and gender of the children who will receive them, but the club sometimes ends up with extra toys because of the flexible nature of the requests.  
When this happens, the toys are offered to the public. This is one of those years. The toys will be available in the Ouachita Building lobby for a tax-deductible donation to the club starting at 5:30 p.m. on the meeting day.  
Any remaining toys will also be offered at the Village United Methodist Church craft fair later in November.  The money raised goes back into the next year’s toy fund.
The club is a service organization of woodworkers helping their community.  There are projects and mentoring programs for all skill levels.  
If you have an interest in woodworking, plan to attend a meeting.  
Meetings are held in the Ouachita room, Ponce Center, the second Wednesday of the month. A meet and greet period starts at 6:30 pm and is followed by the meeting.
