To the Valley News:
As the 2013 fundraising season comes to a close, I would like to take a moment to recognize a friend, Rotarian and a very talented artisan, Syd Ward.
While enjoying his retirement years from Ward Lumber, Syd continues to produce wood products but now in the form of beautiful cutting boards. From time to time I will have the pleasure of saying hello to Syd at local event where he has the boards on display for purchase and I am in always in complete awe at the talent he holds.
Syd not only sells the cutting boards but also donates a tremendous amount of them to a variety of area fundraisers. He is always giving back to his community.
The next time you attend a local fundraiser or visit a Farmer’s Market, please look out for Syd and explore his handcrafted works.
