2018 International Carnival Glass Association Convention

The ICGA convention for 2018, July 18 – 21, will be at the Crowne Plaza Airport Hotel, 2501 S High School Road, Indianapolis, IN Reservations: 1-317-244-6861.  This convention will feature a display room of Beauty and the Beast (You have to be there to see this unique display). Those of you attending are invited and strongly encouraged to bring a piece you think is a real beauty and one that is a beast in some way – either it’s ugly, your spouse bought it and you didn’t like it, or perhaps you paid too much. You are encouraged to send a list to Sherry Cyza (Find her info on our board members’ list on the website), Display Room Coordinator, so she may organize her thoughts for the display room. Those of you bringing the items might give a little synopsis of why they are beauty and the beast. Other seminars or presentations will be given by Don and Barb Chamberlain and the banquet presentation will be by Carl and Eunice Booker. We haven’t had a game in years, so Brian Foster has something fun and interesting in his Game Show.

One of the highlights of the convention will be the auction of Nancy and the late Bernie May and Emmett and Dorothy Morgan, which should feature a beautiful array of carnival glass.
