Vancouver Pen Club---APRIL 2019 meeting info: Date: Thursday April 18, 2019
Time:6:00pm to 8:30pm (Don't worry if you're late---we usually start at around 6:30 )
Place: TheTERRY SALMAN branch of the Vancouver Public Library, located at 4575 Clancy Loranger Way, Vancouver (on the lower level of the Hillcrest Community Center) by Nat Bailey Stadium (near Queen Elizabeth Park). This was where our February meeting was held. The meeting will take place in their Community Room (meeting room)--same place as before. No food allowed but covered drinks are ok. There's a little café inside the Community Center and vending machines as well, if you want to have a snack before the meeting. Hillcrest Community Center parking is free. Topic: FOUNTAIN PENS WITH ANIMAL THEMES (many thanks to Jerred for the topic/theme idea ) + our twice-annual INK SWAP/SELL!
If you have any fountain pens relating to animals (including birds/fish/insects), please bring them with you to our meeting for our topic/theme. They can be fountain pens with design features related to animals, nib imprints with animals on them, or just fountain pen models named after animals.
The Ink swap/sell is something we do twice a year and it is 100% voluntary. If you have ink (modern or vintage fountain pen ink, in bottles or cartridges) that you wish to sell or trade, please bring it with you (bottles that aren't completely full are fine). If don't have any inks to trade or sell--no problem! Oh, and if you're thinking of buying some ink, I'd suggest bringing some cash with you to the meeting..
Our secondary topic is always Newest Acquisitions, so if you have any new pens, ink or pen-related accessories (e.g. pen cases), please bring them with you to show.
No need to RSVP for any regular meeting not held at a restaurant! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
