Jim is a talented artist from Simcoe Ontario who has been a great friend to our show since it began in 1990. He's been a Lodge Member from the beginning and has been supporting the Lodge with his talents ever since. He recently had his first solo art show, featuring 23 original air-brushed paintings, at the Old Town Hall in Waterford Ontario. If any of you come and see me on tour, you will notice one of Jim's carvings hanging on the podium. It was originally in the show and was the only piece I took home from the Lodge when we stopped production in November of 2005. Below is just a sample of what Jim has done for us over the years. Thank you Jim. We're proud to have you as Member of the Month and wish you and your family all the best.
Jim's first carving for the show. We took it as a compliment.
Jim's attempt at turning the Lodge into a major retailer.

Jim made all the plaques when we did our PBS Beg-A-Thons.
Jim in front of a giant possum he made for our PBS satellite production. Fist time a dead possum has gone live.
A Handyman Award from Jim.
Jim's version of Bill.
Jim presented us with this award after our 10th year. Maybe he thought that would be the end of it. That was 14 years ago. Happy trails my friend.
