A review of toys in work was held and exchanges of parts and toys in work were made.  A review of all 22 types of toys in work was conducted to identify what parts are needed and what parts are completed.  Our toy building marathon will begin on Sept 10 and continue until all toys for 2016 are completed.

Paul took two boxes of toys home to drill axle holes.  Darwin took one box of traced toys home to cut to shape.  Bob will order axles to replace those used in the numerous Give Away Van events that we attended this summer.
