2018 HCA Convention
June 13-16, 2018
This is your Captain here…to bring you up to date on preparations for the spectacular 2018 Convention!
A BIG WAVE goes to Sharon Orienter for stepping up to the “plank” to educate all of us on the Waverly pattern!!! This Seminar #2 – 1519 Waverly Pattern by Sharon Orienter will be presented on Thursday in the lower level of the Museum, adjacent to the Blue Lagoon Cafe. We have another seminar on Friday that would be of interest to all of us sailors. At 10:30 am in the lower level of the Museum Seminar #3 – Making a Splash! Handing Down Heisey: Top Ten Things to Know by Frachele Scott. (License in NC) This should be very interesting to all of us Members. Thank you Frachele for presenting this information for us.
Be sure to contact Dan Kilgore if your study club or you, as an individual, wish to participate in the table displays. It is always exciting to see everyone’s talent and creativity when showcasing their precious Heisey. I am so excited about my club’s upcoming display!!!
This is a great opportunity to meet up with all of your Heisey friends and bring your “log books” up to date. Be sure when registering to reserve your Convention Souvenir (the Cobalt Blue Lodestar nappy), as I am sure they will sell very fast, due to how beautiful they really are.
Hopefully, all of your are planning to bring your “ship to port” to attend the Convention on June 13 – 16th. This time of year in Newark always gives you a chance to spend time with friends and to add those beautiful pieces to your collection. I know I can’t wait!!!!!
I have sent out an email to the Study Clubs concerning the silent and live auctions donations.
Also, if memory serves me correctly, there have been individuals who have shared with all of us your favorite recipes as a donation to the Blue Lagoon Cafe’s menu. If you wish to do this, please let me know. I am sure the two Virginia’s and all of us hungry sailors will appreciate your thoughtfulness.
It is time for this Captain to head back out to sea!
