Highlights from the
2015 Convention

This year's convention was held in Glastonbury, CT and again at the Hilton Garden Inn. It was an excellent weekend where members enjoyed two days of Wallace Nutting events and camaraderie, beginning with Friday's Auction and Hospitality Suite. Saturday began with the Buy/Sell/Trade set-up followed by the Business Meeting; Presentations; and Show & Tell. Saturday afternoon included exceptional guided tours through the Webb-Deane-Stevens Museums in nearby Wethersfield. The day was then capped off by our annual and always-fun Club Dinner, followed by a final get-together in the Hospitality Suite.
