Workshop: How to Keep Your Clock Running
(and save some $$$ too)
The local chapter of the National Association of Watch and Clock Collectors (NAWCC), a group of people in all things horological: we collect clocks and watches, or repair/restore them, or build them from scratch, or do case refinishing, or study their science and history…
The NAWCC issues a bi-monthly magazine with truly fine articles on collecting, repairing, and history; has extensive on-line forums for communicating with others; and a world class lending library (available via U.S. mail for a nominal cost) with thousands of books and other media types, many being very rare and difficult to obtain.
Our local chapter 31 meets at the Beaverton library at 2:00 on the 3rd Sunday of every month; we have a “mart” where folks bring items to buy and sell, followed by a program, usually a presentation on some aspect of horology.
In October, we are throwing the doors open and inviting all those who want to keep their clocks running and in good repair to come and start learning the fundamentals. If you have a clock or two that’s sitting idle because of it’s too expensive to service, come on the 15th and learn if you can save that money and do the work yourself.

All who attended can attest to the success of our most recent Regional, thanks to the many volunteers who made the Regional possible. If you attended the Regional you know of the many quality presentations that were available at no charge. We thank the presenters for their fine performance. The final wrap-up meeting is this coming weekend after which, we will be able to post the statistical results of the Regional.
We are an organization of volunteers and the Regional is testament our ability to provide a first class event. As a Chapter, we hold monthly events or Chapter Meetings which are intended to be of the same high quality. Some of our chapter organizers are moving on from their active role. Others are needed to step forward to fill those positions. Input is needed for Future Programs, Workshop, Ch, Reports to the NAWCC Mart, and Chapter Meeting venues. A committee of two or three people in each category would be ideal. Please contact me if you would like to participate in any one of these areas. All suggestions are welcome.
Check the “ Coming Meetings”.
No Meetings or Workshops are scheduled for the Fall--Yet!
Now is your chance to help move the Chapter in the direction you would like to see us take.
I hope to see you in June and August and otherwise continue to enjoy a great NW Summer!
