Sneak peek at next year's Convention

We have a theme already for the Convention - HOLLYWOOD! The only change to the schedule from last year is an earlier opening of the Glass Show on Saturday morning. So it looks like this:
Friday June 24th from 1:00 - 5:00
Saturday June 25th from 10:30 to 4:00
The Glass Dash will be Saturday the 25th and the hours remain 7:00 - 11:00 with the same Early Bird and General Admission.

October 11 - November Program is approaching

We hope you’ll be able to join us at the November meeting and learn about the items newly marketed in 1945-1954 by the Cambridge Glass Company. The registration deadline of October 17th is rapidly approaching. Have you sent in your registration form to participate in the November Membership Meeting and Educational Program?

For those Friends of Cambridge arriving to Cambridge early, there is plenty to do. Several quality antique shops and malls are located within an hour or so of Cambridge. The Dickens Victorian Village performers and scenery will be waiting to delight you, including an actual Dickens relative making an appearance. Yes, there are Victorian-era activities being planned at the NCC Museum, and other locations during the weekend of the Program, and subsequent weekends.

August 29 - Register for the November Program

The November Membership Meeting & Educational Program will be held on Saturday, November 7, upstairs at Theo’s Restaurant, 632 Wheeling Avenue in downtown Cambridge, Ohio, just a few blocks from the NCC Museum. Cocktail hour begins at 5:00 PM followed by a buffet dinner at 6:15 PM. If you are bringing glass for the program or Show and Tell, plan to arrive at Theo’s no later than 5:15 - 5:30. The cost of the dinner is $19.50 per person. The Membership Meeting and Program will follow dinner as well as the Bring and Brag presentation hosted by Lynn Welker. The deadline for returning the Registration Form is Saturday, October 17, 2015.

August 10 - Looking forward to the Auction

Next year's All-Cambridge Auction will be held on Saturday, March 5th, 2016. Why am I telling you this now? Because now is the time to start working on your Cambridge Glass list that you would like to submit for consideration in the 2016 NCC Benefit Auction. During the months of August and September the committee will accept lists of proposed lots to be considered for the auction. Check our Auction Page for details on the consignment procedures. Let's make this Auction even better than last year's.

June 30 - Convention over - lots of fun, lots of glass!

Convention this year was a success, beginning with an Open House on Wednesday evening, and continuing through until Saturday. Glass displays of "Ebony and Ivory" were fantastic, and there were some pretty spectacular pieces that went to new collections during the Glass Show. The Board of Directors chose Rich Bennett to receive the Phyllis Smith Award for service to the NCC, a well-deserved honor. You should plan to come to Convention next year, as it is always a lot of fun, and you never know what you'll find to take home with you.

May 14 - Kids at the Museum

A quick update from Cindy Arent: We had 50 third graders through the Museum today! They made rubbings from the etching plates, and we also had groups on the front sidewalk learning to play marbles!

December 22 - Notice the 'Giving Works' logo at left

This logo takes you to an eBay site where you can make a donation to the National Museum of Cambridge Glass using PayPal. We'll leave it there, just above the link to the eBay store where we sell publications and memberships via eBay.

TWO videos of the NCC Museum !

During the month of June, the museum hosted crews from two different television stations. The first visit was from "New Day Cleveland" - a show from FOX 8 Cleveland that travels around the state of Ohio and features interesting places. They have given us permission to include the portion that features our museum.

The second visit was from Cable 2 and the crew of their "Talk of the Town" show. Again, they visited the Museum and gave us permission to include the portion that features the NCC Museum.

NCC wishes to thank both Fox 8 Cleveland and Cable 2 for the visit and the videos. You need to wait until the video loads (30-40 seconds) and you may have to adjust the sound. Both videos really showcase our Museum.
