February Meeting Recap

Our February meeting was on the 15th and the covered topic was Eagle Writing Instruments.  Many members brought in their collections and discussed them.  Basil gave a very informative talk on their history, using his collection as a perfect guide.  Here are a few photos of some examples ~

We also tested several inks that the members brought it and there was great food/drink and a bit of trading and selling. We look forward to everyone attending next month and don’t forget to invite new members!
