46th Annual

2023 CONVENTION

July 25, 26, & 27th

 

We are pleased to announce FAGCA's 46th Annual Convention. The theme this year - Blast From The Past - planned for you by convention co-chairs Miriam Boyle, Max Iverson, and Cindy Coghill. Festivities will take place at Marietta Shrine Club, a beautiful facility located at 249 Pennsylvania Avenue in Marietta (near the fairgrounds). This is a wonderful venue in a beautiful setting, right along the Muskingum River. We feel this location will serve our growing needs perfectly and will afford our members the freedom to choose lodging which best suits them. We truly appreciate the past 6 years of hospitality we received from Williamstown First Baptist Church.

FAGCA's special tour of the factory on August 4, 2016 was to include a small companion booklet for review during the tour. Unfortunately, we were unable to put this booklet together in time for the tour. We are thrilled our attendance exceeded the numbers we were expecting, but this caused some members to go home without this little momento. Please feel free to view the booklet below, in photgraphic form. Excerpts taken from "Fenton Glass: The 2nd 25 Years" and "Fenton Glass: The 3rd 25 Years" both by William Heacock and "The Fenton Story of Glass Making" by Alan Linn.
