April Meeting Recap

This month’s meeting was well attended on the 20th. Our topic was ” Your Favorite Nibs”. Here is a photo of some nice vintage pens belonging to Fritz, which he discussed. Everyone chipped in with some very interesting stories of pens they enjoy writing with and showing examples. Interestingly, Barry suggested a related topic for next months meeting – materials that we enjoy writing on. Thank you Barry, and we look forward to this topic in May.

Mike Carter, our resident pen restorer, and owner of Fountain Pen Recycler, spoke and demonstrated on repairing a Mont Blanc Safety Pen. Here are two photos of his talk, which provided a lot of information on these vintage Mont Blancs.

Finally, on the humorous side, Neil (our Treasurer) shared the new spelling of our Club (according to our Bank’s check writing software) ~

At least Northern was spelled correctly!
