Pens for Troops

The program was born a decade ago and many people across the nation make writing pens for our troops seeing action overseas. Our chapter produces close to 200 pens a year and we make this project one of our special production weekends that we try to tie in with a public event like a BBQ contest to draw attention to our craft and the reason behind our making of these pens. We have met several of our military who have received one of these pens and their appreciation is what keeps us making even more pens.

On August 13, 2022, MSWG had a Turn-In to make pens for troops. If you were not there, you missed a great time, and we hope to see you next time.

We had a great time because we were:

Giving back to our men and women in service to our country

Hanging out and eating donuts

Helping new/inexperienced turners learn how to make pens

Enjoying the fantastic weather

Getting dull tools sharpened by an experienced woodturner

Enjoying a sense of pride in making the pens/seeing a task well done
