1) the girl at blenko said this is not available.
2) the new pumpkins are great
I didnt like the neon orange but my teen loves it and I like the new gold /brown looking ones.

Bill Blenko day was a great idea.Milton should be commended, honoring long term business men is something should be doing on a county wide base. Is there another glass plant or any plant that has served WV for 100 years?

I phoned 304 743 9081 today and was told they do have a couple. Try this # and let me know.

Fenton, Marble King and Blenko are I think the remaining 'old' glass facilities . . . Fenton is suppose to be closing soon.
I agree honoring the Fenton, Blenko's and the Marble King (Im forgetting her name) family makes great sense to me. Call your local represenative or state rep and make the suggestion.
