About the event
We welcome back WHS Trustee Dani Masterson and WHS member Paul DiMarco, who are also active members of the Hudson Valley Bottle Club, to speak with us about bottle collecting. They will be joined by Alex Prizgintas, past HVBC president, local author and historian. Whether they are apothecary, milk or drink bottles, they all have historical significance and tell tales of years gone by. Learn about the types of bottles found and used locally, how they were obtained, and how they are evaluated, dated and cleaned. Attendees are welcome to bring a bottle for identification after the talk.
This informative and interesting event is part of our Speaker Series programming. The public is invited to attend. WHS member admission is free, non-member suggested donation of $5.00. Refreshments will be served. Seating is limited and is on a first come/first serve basis. Please RSVP to help us plan attendance and to be added to our mailing list.
