Fountain Pen Day Weekend!!!

In honor of Fountain Pen Day November 1, we will meet November 2.

What will be happening??

Firstly, we will definitely set  up more tables, and create more areas to help different interest groups do their thing!   We hope to have an ink area, an area with pens for sale, a place for people to share their pens with each other, etc.

Pizza!!!

There will be pizza, cold water, plates and napkins.

Other snacks and beverages would be appreciated, but we will have to be surprised by generous members who bring food and drinks to share.

Raffle prizes!!!!
