Swirl running late!

The OBC “Swirl” was mailed on the morning of December 7th. Things are running very slow, Roger Hardesty got his Wednesday December 16th. He lives 10 miles from me.  Please use the attached envelope to mail your 2021 dues.

Since my original Post, I email a few members to see when the Swirl was post marked, Dec. 11th and 12th. How is it that a first class Swirl can be dropped off on Dec. 7th and post marked 4 days later? Going to visit the Post Office tomorrow to find out.

P.S. the OBC is looking for a new President and Swirl editor.

OBC News

It is with great sadness and a heavy heart to announce the passing of Clark Wideman this past Wednesday. Clark was an OBC member and very generously donated to the OBC cider and donuts October meeting. For me, Clark was best remembered for the Columbus Bottle Show. He used his motorized wheel chair to impact the show. Our prayers to Clarke’s family and friends.

December Swirl to be mailed on Monday.

Got an email from Rojer Moody that the February Columbus Show will be canceled.

Saw on the FOHBC website and Facebook that the Baltimore Bottle Show is re-scheduled to September 25-26, 2021.
