This month’s meeting is on Friday October 20 at 6:30 pm.  The topic for the Meeting will be Sheaffers Snorkel Repair, as shown by Frank Crescioni.  Thank you to Frank for stepping up and showing us this specialized repair.   Please also bring any recent finds and items of interest.


Rain Taxi Book Fair

P.E. N.S. attended the Rain Taxi Bood Fair at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds on Saturday October 15.  Below is our President’s report.  Thank you to all Members who made this a success!
The P.E.N.S. presence at the Rain Taxi book fair at the Fairgrounds was a great success! We signed up half a  dozen people interested in joining our club and made another 3 dozen attendees aware of our Pen Club activities. We will definitely do this again next year. It is the best investment of our $100 to spread the word about the joy of writing and drawing with Fountain Pens. I would guess there were over 2000+ attendees Saturday maybe more.
  • Thanks to Verla for suggesting it and following up on it.
  • Thanks to John Buettner for working hard to get us the last 1/2 table avilable out of 500+ tables.
  • Thanks to Frank Crescioni for printing the fabulous P.E.N.S. Book Marks. We will give 3-5 copies of the book marks to the attendees at our next meeting Oct. 20th (Frank remember to bring the book marks).
  • Thanks to Joel our most popular calligrapher.
  • Thanks to Jim Nelson for showing up to give moral support to the people manning the table.
  • Below are a few pictures Francis had to share. Wish we had a picture of Joel writing names on the Book Marks. I also wish we had a picture of John Buettner hustling the crowds and bring them to our table:—))  …Francis
