Mark your calendar for VADA's fall meeting November 15th to be held at the Middlebury Inn in Middlebury, Vt. On tap will be the election of officers for the coming two year terms. Many thanks are extended to Greg Hamilton as he passes on the gavel to our next President. Who will that be? If you are a VADA member come to the meeting, vote, and find out!
I am happy to report that Tommy Thompson, co-owner of Thos. Bartlett Antiques & Oddments in Chichester, N. H. says that his surgery was a success. It just proves that you can't keep a good man down.
Wrapping up the month of October I heard good reports from VADA dealers doing the Vermont Antiques Expo at the Essex Fairgrounds. Good crowds and equally good sales.
