The weather was great for the 37th annual Mansfield Bottle Show. The dealers and early admissions enjoyed a great (but late) meal on Friday night. A fatal crash on 71 South closed the freeway for 5 hours with our caterers caught in the mess. About 200 braved the delay and shared the company of friends.
Join us on April 30th for our “Advertising” program. Bring some great examples to share. It is also cupcake month. Don’t forget Mansfield is less than two weeks away. I could use some members to contribute by taking some great pictures.
Mansfield 2015 is just around the corner with less than 3 weeks to go until show time. We are well over the 200 table mark with contracts and phone calls pouring in daily for both tables and early admission. This promises to be a great show with many new dealers setting up for the first time. You won’t want to miss this one. Best Regards, Matt Lacy Mansfield 2015 show chairman. Contract.

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.
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
This month is Presidential theme month. Please share anything that is patriotic. Be creative as you look at your treasurers. We need at least 10 members to share. The image is a Cleveland Cycles vintage clock with an American flag from Sears.
A smaller than normal group enjoyed a presentation by Brian Gray about 19th century plates. Many of his plates were obtained at auction from those dollar box lots at the end with stuff nobody wants. Brian was in true Halloween spirit dress as a bottle dump. See all the great pictures.
