January Meeting Recap

Friday night’s meeting was well attended, though this month’s host, Frank, was unfortunately under the weather.  We hope he get better soon!    The topic for this month was brown striated Sheaffer Pens.  Here are a few photos ~

Robb brought in this neat Sheaffer Desk set that he found recently. Mint condition and still packaged!

January Meeting

The January 2013 Meeting is tomorrow at 7:00!  Frank has already assembled an information filled Newsletter that he will have for distribution.   This month’s theme is Brown Striated Sheaffer Pens and the Activity is a Parts Swap.   So bring those extra parts that are taking up  space in your office or workbench.  They may be the missing link to someone trying to put together a vintage gem.

2012 Holiday Party

The Holiday Party was held on December 30 at the Summer House in Shoreview.  The food and friendship was plentiful.  Fritz, Basil, and Mike all provided entertaining Pen themed puzzlers for the Members and spouses.  Once again, we awarded prizes for the prettiest and ugliest pens, and had a gift (pens, of course) exchange.  Thank you to the Summer House for their hospitality, and to Fritz for spearheading this fun evening.

Unfortunately, the Webmaster was having such a good time that he did not take many photos this year. Here are a couple of the “quiz tables”.
