Attendees of the 2015 “Old Guard” reunion.

In 2014, Stanley and Sharon Joehlin and Bob and Nancy Brown initiated a get-together of longtime members of the glass industry in Toledo, Ohio, for an afternoon of socializing followed by cocktails and dinner. The 2015 gathering doubled in size with 20 glass veterans, retired and active members of the industry, as well as 13 spouses and guests, joining to reminisce and share stories.

The group is welcoming anyone in the glass industry to join them July 27 for the 2016 edition. Spouses and guests are welcome and encouraged to join. Dinner will cost $50 per person.

Interested individuals may contact Stanley Joehlin at swjoehlin@amplex.net, Bob Brown at bobrown38@embarqmail.com or Ren Bartoe at ren.bartoe@vesuvius.com for details. RSVPs are requested by June 15, 2016.
