Due to the current restrictions and suggested limitations on travel and interactions with others, the CAT Board has decided to cancel our April 16th Club Meeting and April 17th Club Workshop with Cody Walker. We wish everyone the very best of health throughout these difficult times.
Welcome to Catoctin Area Turners
Catoctin Area Turners (CAT) is located in Leesburg, VA. Established in 2009, we are a group of enthusiasts dedicated to the craft of woodturning. Our mission is to advance the art of woodturning by educating our members and the public, enhancing the skills of our members and promoting the awareness of safety. This is accomplished by encouraging, providing, and facilitating the establishment of training programs for woodturners; disseminating information about technique, safety, sources of material and equipment; exposing the art of woodturning to the public; and serving as a center of information about woodturning.
CAT is a local chapter of the American Association of Woodturners.
Give Choose Donations - May 5, 2020
Catoctin Area Turners (CAT) has joined other Loudoun County non-profit organizations to participate in this year’s Give Choose event.
Give Choose is a 24-hour day of giving organized by the Community Foundation for Loudoun and Northern Fauquier Counties to benefit local charities serving our community. The goal is to inspire our community to come together to give generously to charities that make our community the best place to grow up and grow old.
The 2020 Give Choose 24-hour donation period is May 5th. CAT has established a goal of $5,000 to support our Community Outreach Initiatives, maintain our existing equipment and purchase a used lathe to increase participation in our woodturning classes. You can find the CAT page at the Give Choose website, www.givechoose.org, under the Education category. Mark your calendars and be ready to give!
