The Ohio Bottle Club turns 50 in 2019 and going strong for another 50. We should mark the occasion with some sort of celebration. Seems to me that Mansfield or the summer picnic or both would be proper venues for at least a celebratory cake with 50 candles. I envision our 200+ dinner guests on […]
Thursday October 25th, we are in for a real treat. Louis Fifer will present a program on Pikes Peak. He has an extensive collection of Pikes Peak flasks with many rare examples. Refreshments for the evening are cider and donuts.
Thursday September 27 is “Share your recent treasurers” night. This is a great opportunity to educate the members on what you collect. Munchies are planned for the refreshment break.
