BATAVIA – Those who attend this weekend's Show-N-Tell Wood Expo in Batavia will be able to find out a little more about the art of woodworking.

The expo, co-sponsored by the DuPage Wood Workers Club and the Fox Valley Wood Workers Club, will be from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday at Bethany Lutheran Church, 8 S. Lincoln St., Batavia. The Fox Valley Wood Workers Club holds its monthly meetings at the church.

Those who attend will be asked to contribute a $2 donation, and anything collected over and above expenses will be shared by one charity nominated from each club. Those who come to the show should expect to see a wide variety of woodworking projects, said Keith Rosche, show chairman for the Fox Valley Wood Workers Club.

Rosche said he has been involved in woodworking since he was a youngster.

"I love the beauty of the wood," Rosche said. "I made a birdhouse in the fourth grade, and I'm 71 now. I love making children's furniture."

Those who come to the show will also be able to see woodworkers at work, as there will be demonstrations throughout the day. In addition, the Swedish Children's Choir will hold a pancake breakfast from 9 a.m. to noon.
