Findlay Club Newsletter Editor Retires

2010 is coming to an end, and the Findlay Bottle Club is looking forward to the new year. We're making a few changes.

First, our longtime newsletter editor Tom Brown has retired as editor. We want to thank him for his many years of putting together articles and news about the bottle hobby for our newsletter, Whittlemarks. Tom used to be Co-editor with Shirley MacDonald who retired a few years ago due to ill-health. Their hard work has been enjoyed and appreciated for years. THANK YOU!

Our club is foregoing the print newsletter. It just not practical, given the costs. This website is able to cover far more than we could ever afford to print, and accesses 100's more eyeballs. Our club website and all of our email newsletters will continue to be free.

We will continue keeping you updated on all our club activities here on this website, and sharing hobby news.

Content contributions are always welcome. Please send in your articles, press releases, show flyers, show reports, photos, club info -- anything you want the bottle collecting world to see. Our email list is at almost 500 names, and growing daily. The website gets 1,000's of hits each month. Your articles will be available online (and searchable) for readers 'forever', long after a monthly printed issue will be set aside. Contact Marianne Dow at


We have voted in our club officers for 2011. Thank you to the outgoing officers. Your time and contributions are so appreciated. Thank you, too, to the incoming officers, we look forward to working together.
