Glass Show and Convention Committee member, Sandy Bridwell-Walker has been hard at work securing more Group Rates for Cambridge hotels. Some of these are just for Convention, others are good any time of the year. You just have to say you want the "Cambridge Glass Collectors rate". Follow this link for details by hotel. We will keep this updated and let you know of any changes in the "Hotel News" to your left.Comfort Inn - Special Rates for NCC
The Comfort Inn in Cambridge has generously offered a special rate of $79/night for guests who qualify as "Cambridge Glass Collectors" at any time during the year. Simply call the hotel direct (740-435-3200) and identify yourself as a "Cambridge Glass Collector" to get the preferred rate. Hotel/Motel rates in Cambridge have been skyrocketing in recent years, and we appreciate this property offering this favorable rate, well below the normal charge. NCC is negotiating Convention rates at other area hotels. Visit our website frequently for any updated information.Special Museum Hours during the Annual Auction

Museum Holiday Open House Report
It was a wonderful open house today! We were worried that it wouldn't be busy with the rain, but it started at 10:30 and was wild until 4:30. However, one of the best moments for me was meeting Ethel Liptak Stasny who worked in the Selecting Department at the CGC. She is 86 and her friend was 90. Those gals toured the entire museum and Ethel found her name in the payroll records. Here she is pointing to her official "CGC Selecting Department" photo on display in the etching room. She was thrilled to say the least. (Click on image for larger photo)Museum Holiday Schedule
The Museum is closed during the week from November through March, but it is open on weekends in November and December Noon to 4:00PM.Sneak peek at next year's Convention

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.
