President’s Message (November – December 2017)

We hope you like this issue of Bottles and Extras which is dedicated to our recent 2017 Springfield National. You will find within, an excellent comprehensive Springfield article by Jim Bender, one of our co-chairs. We decided to pair the Springfield article with Eric McGuire’s outstanding “Another Look at Sandwhich Glass’ article that initially appeared in the Springfield National souvenir program. These two feature pieces took most of our space within this issue. You will still find your section favorites like Member News, Shards of Wisdom, Member Photos, History’s Corner and Lost & Found etc. We even added a new page for Virtual Museum News which will now appear each issue. This update is being authored by Richard Siri who initially came up with the Virtual Museum idea.
