The purpose of our organization is to broaden our knowledge, to aid in the preservation of Depression Era Glassware, and to encourage, assist and educate collectors and the public. Our monthly Meeting is held on the first Monday of every Month, at Peter's Place Restaurant . (Click on the Restaurant name for a Mapquest locator map.) The address is: 1199 Washington Pike Bridgeville, PA 15017. Telephone: 412-221-5000. We order from a limited menu or have a buffet. Orders are taken from 6:00-6:20PM. Dinner is served at 6:30PM. The Business Meeting starts at 7PM, with our Program following. Please join us for dinner, or come later for the Program. We welcome guests!
What do we do? We learn. We laugh. We have fun! Meetings are held on the first Monday of each month. The time, location, and program are announced in the monthly newsletter. Dinner, at your own expense, is at 6:00 PM. This is a good time to mingle and get to know the other members. At 7:00 PM we have a short business meeting followed by a glass-related program.
We either have a speaker or do a "Show & Tell" discussion. Visitors are welcome at meetings and may join immediately by paying the current years dues. Every meeting offers the opportunity for "Show & Tell, Show & Ask, Show & Brag". Members bring items from their collections either to get information, add to the information about that evening's topic, or to share a good buy.
In December, we meet socially with no formal program or meeting. Just food, fellowship, and fun. Since education is such an important part of what we do, we combine our antique book orders and get a discounted group rate. At the meeting, we have "Book Nook" where members can sell or trade their used books.
We work and plan year 'round for our annual Glass Show and Sale just ended the March 2nd and 3rd 2013 and was a great success. If you missed the show make plans to come next year on March 1st and 2nd 2014.
