SWCC CARVINGGrant Sims, a new member to The Southwest Conservation Club, recently volunteered his services as a wood carver to create some new décor for the clubhouse. Grant has only been carving for the past 9 months, but this hobby has quickly turned into a passion. Armed with a chainsaw and some other woodworking tools, Grant carved 2 tall bears, 1 short bear and plans to carve a lighthouse on the Club’s campground.

Grant’s assistance with carving these pieces of art shows new life beginning to sprout for the historic Club, which experienced a fire in April and has been remodeling ever since. The Southwest Conservation Club has stated that they do not have a grand opening date, as of yet but work is in progress.
