ANNOUNCEMENT

        DISPLAYS ARE NEEDED FOR UPCOMING CONVENTION

          YOUR HELP IS NEEDED !

We are still in need of displays for our convention.  Remember a display does not need to be stoneware. In the past we've had displays on antique coffee tins, toys, banks etc.  The club pays $100.00 to those who put up a display.


If you would like to do a display please contact Bill & Jean Engel at 815-275-4139 or by email engelwl42@yahoo.com.
