2018 HCA Convention
June 13-16, 2018
WOW! It’s hard to believe the 2018 Convention has come and gone! I think all of you who attended had a great time and took home lots of treasures after spending your gold doubloons. I know I did!
The Blue Lagoon Café was “jumping” this year! Every time I stopped in for a “nip”, the tables were crowded with “sailors” having a great time. Thanks to all who contributed food and drink…and especially to Ginny Marsh, Virginia Yeakley and their helpers for the set up and take down of the “joint”. When in “Heiseyland” we sure enjoy our food…don’t we?
A “HUGE SHOUTOUT” goes to all of the help I received to make the convention successful! All of the donations from the Newark community were arranged by Jack, Linda and Michael…they know everyone in “port”! Susan and the museum staff were amazing and always available for assistance! Thank you Kim Clark for being my navigator.
The donations for the Silent and Live Auctions were incredible! Thanks to all who contributed!
The Glass Show was fabulous! I saw lots of bags and boxes being carried out to “ships” to make the journey home. Thank you Dealers for providing us with our beautiful treasures!
This was Charlene Bowman’s last year as Glass Show Chairman. Thank you for all of the years of organizing this event.
The table displays were gorgeous! Thanks to all who participated. A special thanks goes to Dan Kilgore for the “Under The Sea” décor he made. Did you know he only uses a jigsaw to cut these beauties out? I assumed he had a full blown workshop in the lower level of his ship…nope, just a jigsaw!
Yo Mates…it is time for me to head back out to sea. Again… THANK YOU to all who helped make “Under The Sea” another successful Convention!
See ya later alligator at our next event,
