    I look forward to driving up. Thanks for the invite. It was easy to copy over into my outlook calendar. Isn't Wixsons up there somewhere? I wonder if they are open on Sat. mornings. I'd really like to pick up a few cases of bottles.

    They are somewhere around here, but I believe they're open weekdays only.

    I'd be willing to bet Jerry will be at the meeting. If you give him a call, he might bring the bottles to Geneva for you.

    Someone contacted me about who can attend, but I can't reply by forum email or direct email.

    All are welcome to attend the meeting. You don't need to be a club member, nor is there an event fee. If you'd like a PDF of the flier for the event (just a simply 1-page info sheet), email me at shelleylstuart@gmail.com.

    Geneva is very close to the New York State Thruway, so it should be relatively easy for people to get there, despite the fact that we are having the meeting in the middle of Upstate Winter

    For those visting Wixsons they primarily buy and sell honey, glassware and beeswax. Roscoe, who is gone now, got out of the wooden equipment business years ago. They do have gloves and some items in the office where you'll get to meet Jenny who is a real peach. They have the best prices on glassware you'll find anywhere and great selection so it's worth it to stock up. We were unable to buy glassware cheaper from the manufacturer even in pallet lots.
