HISTORY OF STWG

The Susquehanna Trail Woodworkers Guild was formed in April 2004.  The first official meeting was called to order by our founder, Ray Parsons.  Woodworkers were rounded up with the hope of building a strong organization.

Those first meetings were held at the Adams Electric Cooperative Building on Trinity Road in York.  In May of 2005 the meeting location was changed to, York County Heritage Trust's Agricultural & Industrial Museum located in York.  In January of 2015 the meeting location was moved to the York Town Craft Guild's building at 639 N Franklin Street in York, PA.

The first newsletter was published in September of 2004 by Mike Galloway.  In July of 2005 we hosted a Woodworking Show at the Trust's Historical Society that allowed members to showcase some of their creativity . It gave us an opportunity to show, not only to our members, but also to the public the craftsmanship of our members.

The Guild is a locally grown organization.  We are not part of a larger entity.  We have decided, along the way, who we are, where we are headed and what we want to accomplish.
