Louis Fifer was named the FOHBC Conventions Director. He joins 3 other Ohio Bottle Club members that are serving on the FOHBC Board of Directors; Ron Hands is the Southern Region Director, Matt Lacy is the Midwest Region Director and Gary Beatty is the Treasurer.
The Ohio Bottle Club wishes all a Happy Easter. Check out all the bottle and insulator shows on the OBC “Bottle Shows” tab at the top of the website. Only about a month till Mansfield. I’m placing an order for shirts early next week.
1st Annual Wilmington Show a Success!
Thanks for all those that contributed at the February meeting with their “Presidential” items. It was amazing the variety of collectibles. This month is “Anything But Bottles”. We need participants to share their collections. I purchased the SVGA projector. I have had some interest in members donating to cover the cost. Any donation would be appreciated. My plans are to use the projector at each meeting starting with March. Mansfield is coming
Plan to attend the Wilmington Bottle Show, this weekend Sunday, March 22nd. It should be good with an excellent hotel, the Robert’s Centre and nice weather. The Show is just off 71 between Columbus and Cincinnati. Mark you calendars for the great Mansfield Show and Sale on Saturday, May 9th.
Thought a few green bottles and some vintage postcards would be appropriate for St. Patrick’s Day. The pink Victorian Christmas light is a rare Irish light that has a shamrock motif on it. Remember Wilmington on Sunday March 22nd at the Roberts Centre. It will begin the bottle season in Ohio. Mark your calenders for Mansfield, Saturday May 9th. This looks to be an exciting year for bottle collectors.
