August Meeting

Friday the 16th of August is tomorrow!  Our monthly meeting will be at 7:00 pm at the Associated Bank in St. Paul.  This month’s topic is “A Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing”.   This can mean several different things…so please bring your pens that appear to be pens, but are not (thermometers etc….) or pens that look like a well known fountain pen, but may be an imitation – remember, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery!

July Meeting Recap

The July meeting was well attended and our two topics/themes were:

Inexpensive Pens that we use often, and

Lamy Pens

Members shared many examples of pens that they use often, but are not expensive collectors items.  A few examples were Parker 45s, Sheaffer No Nonsenses, True Writers, Noodlers, and the legendary Pelikan Go.

As for Lamy Pens, we were treated to some very colorful, and large collections.  We also received Lamy Catalogs, showing current offerings.

Here is a small sampling of some of the Lamy material brought by our members.
