The Collectors are on their way to East Aurora NY!

Hello Collectors!! Convention 2016 took place on Friday July 29 and July 30, 2016 in the East Aurora NY area. While some of our regulars couldn't make it, we had a few new faces come to make up the difference! The new venues worked really well, especially using the Blazing Star Masonic Lodge for the sale, since it was located right on Main Street. The Late Fall Newsletter will be mailed out to club members reporting everything that went on at Convention 2016!

Schedule from the 2016 Convention:

FRIDAY JULY 29, 2016 Social Hour/Sale Set-up The sale this year will be at the Blazing Star Masonic Lodge, 645 Main Street, East Aurora NY. Set-up for dealers will be on Friday afternoon (more details to come). The club is planning to hold a social hour from 3:00 to around 4:30ish on Friday at the Blazing Star Masonic Lodge. Social hour is for club members and their guest and friends of the club. If you are a seller/vendor, Becky will be in touch with everyone about all the details of sale preparation.
FRIDAY JULY 29, 2016 FPCLUB BOARD MEETING? (board members only, rest of you don't have to worry about this!) TENTATIVE! The board holds their annual meeting during the convention, usually on Friday. The current president is not attending this year, (and we no longer have the church as our meeting place) so this one is still being planned out!
