Hinsdale Covenant Church

Every meeting includes a program, which may involve a speaker presentation, films or slides dealing with a variety of subjects relating to bottles and other collections of interest to Club members. Prior to the program, a show-and-tell feature gives the members the opportunity to bring in new finds. These fresh discoveries often come with interesting and humorous stories, and ensure that group members continue learning about the world of bottle collecting. The Club provides snacks and refreshments.

Please note, meetings are sometimes held at Club members' homes. Any changes will be noted in the newsletter.
