Tony Dobson, one of the founding members of the Mid-Island Woodworkers Guild and our current President, made a very heart-warming presentation about Rocky, a rocking horse that he completed for a gentleman who passed away a few years ago. Last year, Rocky was donated to charity and $4,000 was raised for the Nanaimo Hospital Foundation.
