  1. I just came across the article in Barrie Today on the request for funds. I am presently in Green Valley AZ but live in Barrie where we have a 6000+ sq ft wood shop. I am retired and would be most interested in joining the Barrie group. If I can be of any help in providing any info/pictures of the Green Valley operation, I would be happy to do so. The internet site is http://www.woodshop.gvrclubs.org.
