Highlights from the 2016 Convention

This year's convention was held back at the Hilton Garden Inn in Ft Washington, PA. It was a great 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 a bus tour to various sites in Bucks County where Nutting took photographs. The day was then capped off by our annual and always-fun Club Dinner, followed by a final get-together in the Hospitality Suite.
