The more than 60 members of HGCP are not only from the local Pittsburgh area, but from throughout distant locations around the Tri-State (Pennsylvania /Ohio /West Virginia) area.
The Glassblower, HGCP's monthly newsletter, is sent to each member prior to each upcoming meeting. It shares information about the previous month's program, upcoming meeting information, events and trip information.
HGCP meets the third Wednesday of every month from September through May. Optional dinners at the Crowne Plaza start at 6:30PM -- Club Meetings start at 7:45PM
Dues for the year are $20. If you think that you would like to attend a meeting to learn more about American Glass and our Club, please use the links and head to the Membership and/or the Contact Us pages. The optional dinner at the Crowne Plaza is $22.61 for members
A great big thank you to our membership for their vote of confidence in the newly elected officers. My fellow officers and I would like to thank Martin and his officers for the successful year 2013-2014.
Your officers and I are looking forward to a fabulous 2014-2015 year. I understand that most of our Speakers are already lined up. Of course, we are all in for a great treat having our September meeting at David Gestler’s home.
We look forward to seeing who will bring in the most new members and wins the $50 gift certificate to the show. The winner will be announced at the January 2015 meeting.
So relax and enjoy your summer. Get out among your family and friends and invite them to join our club. Take advantage of the great flea markets, museums, garage sales and other venues the summer presents and bring home a treasure to share with us in September.
Once again, welcome and we look forward to your next visit!
