Message about Millersburg Fall Gathering

Fall 2020

Hello Members,

I hope everyone is being safe and making the best of this history making year we are experiencing.

Our association and Matthew Wroda Auction Service are doing everything possible to have a safe Fall Gathering and a great auction for you.

I would like to invite all of you to join us, if you can.  We have decided for this year that we will have the gathering and auction all in one day,  Friday October 9, 2020.  It will be held at the Comfort Suites Berlin, 4810 Township Road 366, Millersburg, Ohio 44654.

Please note, this hotel is in Berlin, Ohio, not Millersburg.  It is approximately five (5) miles east of Millersburg.

The glass preview will start at 3:00 p.m. and the Fall Gathering will start at 5:00 p.m., with full meal (compliments of the association) for all members, with the auction starting at 6:00 p.m.  All non-members are welcome to join our association and receive a complimentary meal also.  Membership is $15.00 annually and in addition you will receive four (4) newsletters annually.

We have a block of rooms set aside for the people that would like to travel and stay overnight.  The rate is $139.99 plus 13% sales tax per night.  This is the rate for two (2) queen beds or one (1) king bed.  Phone numbers to make reservations for the special rate at the Comfort Suites are 330-893-7400 or 330-893-2280. You must tell the hotel that you are with the Millersburg Glass Association.  I would advise you to make your reservations early as this a very busy time of year for Holmes County. If you have any problems with your reservations ask to speak with Jen Rangel (or call me at 330-231-2515).

There will be a display of Millersburg Rosalind for you to see and we will have a short talk about the pattern.

Matthew Wroda Auction Company will have an outstanding collection of glass for sale.  For the first time ever, five (5) different Multi Fruits and Flowers water pitchers will be auctioned off in one auction.

See you soon,

Randy G. Jones, President

 


 

Who We Are

In June of 2012, nine collectors met at a Holmes County, Ohio residence and ironed out details to organize the Millersburg Glass Association. They wanted to create a club so they could share the history and beauty of glass made by the defunct Millersburg Glass Company which operated between 1908 and 1911. Six years later, club members hail from all over the United States and Canada.

Each October, in conjunction with the Holmes County Antique Festival, the Millersburg Glass Association holds its Fall Gathering. The Gathering includes a “Meet and Greet” for members on Friday evening and on Saturday everyone is invited to attend an auction of exclusively Millersburg Glass. Attendance has grown each year and the auctions are always packed with fabulous glass. If you are a collector or just enjoy the glass, please join the association and share the experience.

Whether you are a current member or just visiting, thank you, and please enjoy the website.
