Now my question is why didn't our local paper do this?
More photos would have been nice, and I think the Hearld should do indepth article with a zillion on line photos.
I wanna see everything.

Do they bring the glass in doors for the winter?

Sweetdoc Thank you
Please place also your comments on the Newsarticle page for comments.
No one brings glass in for winter - Blenko usually survives most all winter weather.

Well, I posted a comment under the name "Land of BLENKO." That is the name I use when posting on the Charleston Gazette. You never know when a google search will pull up "Land of BLENKO" during someone's search!

Margie Hale, I assumed you lived in Charleston. I am so impressed that you actually live in Connecticut and that you have driven down for Blenko events.

Have a good week all.

P.S. Although people do not bring their Blenko inside for the winter, I do recall everyone talking about cleaning their outside glass. Glass needs LIGHT and dirt, mud, and spatters, detract from LIGHT!

Blenko 's #1 advocate,
you certainly do generate the newsprint for this company.
Have you given any thought to seeking funds from the groups I mentioned?

about blenko in news, did you return Cindy's call?
she wants to feature you in an article.

My parents are often 'washing' their outside glass - couple times each year.
While I 'thank you' for the contact, she was more interested in ME and my volunteer work than in BLENKO - I don't need any more publicity. I'd like just to promote BLENKO and WV Glass.
