Upcoming Auctions:

Jeffrey S Evans & Assoc.

The Bob Culver Memorial Convention & Lamp Auction will be held October 16 - 18, 2024 in Harrisonburg, VA. It will feature a reception at the Evans' home, Bob's lamps at auction, our business meeting and a group dinner.

Bob Culver’s lamp collection is going to be auctioned off at Jeff Evans Auctions October 17, 2024. This has given us an opportunity to have a convention around the sale. We will be coming in Wed. 10/16/24 to preview the lamps. At 6pm we have been invited to a reception at Jeff & Beverly Evans’ house. The auction is Thurs. morning. Sometime that day we will have our business meeting & will also meet for dinner at 6pm as a group at Capital Ale House. Friday head home. I have booked a room block at Best Western Plus Harrisonburg VA, phone number 540-433-9999. The rate is $99.00 + tax per night, & you must book before 9/13/24 to get the special room rate. For those of you who like to come in a day early, the room block also includes 10/15, just tell the hotel at booking which days you want. Mention Night Light to get the special room rate of $99.00. We had to make a hotel change this year as our previous 2 hotels have had a policy change on
room blocks & it’s no longer feasible to stay there. Best Western was the chain we stayed at last year for the IN convention, & the hotel was very nice. This one also has very good reviews. You will find a convention reservation paper in your newsletter. Please fill it out & mail it to me by 9/25/24 at the latest. I need to know how many are coming to plan for both Evans on Wed. & dinner on Thurs. There is no charge by the club to attend. You can also email me at Getting together with other mini lamp people to buy & talk lamps is the best kind of fun, so please join us!

Recap of our Lamp Conventions

I (Kathy) thought it might be fun for you to see just where our conventions have taken us over the many years that we have been getting together as a club.  They were & continue to be fun times!  Where have the years gone??  (The reason that you see Harrisonburg, VA show up more often is because that is when we have based the convention around a major lamp auction at Jeff Evan's Auctions.)
