History of the GuildFor more information or suggestions, contact Guild Historian John Anderson at firstname.lastname@example.org
In June of 1981, Arthur M. Welling, W. Clayton Jackson, Robert A. Harvey, Michael P. McDunn, and J.C. Thompson signed the original Partnership Agreement to establish the Greenville Woodworkers Guild. These founding fathers had a vision to serve the community by developing an association to promote the art of woodworking, to provide woodworking education, and to perform charitable activities.
In the decades since then, membership has grown to more than 700 men, women, and teens, and our headquarters has moved from temporary, borrowed spaces to a world class facility, complete with an amazing shop, a presentation auditorium with tiered seating for 300, and a library full of woodworking magazines and books.
And it feels like the best is yet to come...
