new slt woodcarvers

The Golden Belt Wood Carvers members are preparing for their annual open house Carve-n-Show, to be held Oct. 25-26 at the Great Bend Senior Center. Club member Barry Bowers said the public is invited to stop and view completed wood carvings, along with carvings in progress, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 25, and from noon to 4 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 26.
“We have been working on our first club project,” Bowers said. Members are creating a replica of the Hulme Dry Goods store that was on Great Bend’s Main Street. They have completed pieces to furnish the store, along with a wagon, horse and people, to create a scene from the late 1800s. The first public showing will be at the Carve-n-Show.
Golden Belt Wood Carvers meet from 7-9 p.m. every Thursday, unless it’s a holiday, at the Senior Center, 2005 Kansas Ave. Visitors and carvers of all experience levels are welcome. For more information contact Bowers at or call 620-793-6121.
