Purple Heart Bench Brigade

When we became aware of a New Brunswick project run by Rob Cosman of Grand Bay – Westfield, we knew we wanted to be a part of it. The Purple Heart Project is a non-profit workshop aimed at helping veterans dealing with physical or menta

l injuries by teaching them traditional hand tool woodworking. Thus, the Purple Heart Bench Brigade was born!

Town of Riverview – Santa’s Mail Box

In November 2020, our Guild was asked by the Town of Riverview to build a Santa’s Mailbox to be placed at the gazebo on the riverfront, so boys and girls had a location to mail their wish lists to Santa.  This was our very first community collaboration… we had a blast working on this project and were so happy to have been involved in such a fun initiative.

Riverview Winter Carnival

Our Guild was approached by the Town of Riverview in December of 2020 to build 300 snow pounders for the Town’s 2021 Winter Carnival Activities. We put a call out to our members and the response to help was overwhelming. It didn’t take us long to get a prototype and an assembly line going. Took our team 3.5 days from start to finish and when all done…. we delivered 332 snow pounders to the town. We want to thank our members for answering the call to action…. from the assembly line to clean up. What a great club project!
