Issue No. V July 2000
Welcome to the July 2000 edition of the WPA Press!How it has gotten to be July already is beyond me. Hope you are enjoying vacations, warm sunny days and plenty of trips to your favorite antique locations around the USA — and perhaps beyond! Please consider writing a short narrative (or a long one) and sharing it with us in the fall WPA Press. All submissions are accepted. See the final page of this issue for submission information. In this issue of the Press, Jim Tyne shares his spring break experiences at the George Ohr museum in Biloxi, Mississippi, we have an update on the Pauline Log Cabin restoration, and Barb Huhn and John Marvin share some “buyer beware” stories on antique forgeries. In addition, we recall some fantastic recent WPA presentations on Hull House and Cowan Potteries. Enjoy your travels and remember to join us August 8 at Burrows Park for the annual WPA Picnic — $6 buys a dinner that evening. A map of the park, on the east side of Madison off N. Sherman Ave., is included in this issue. - Kari Kenefick, editor, WPA Press
Welcome Back Dave!! We had a pleasant surprise on June 13 as Dave Auclair attended the WPA's June meeting. Dave has had some serious health challenges recently, but he was as chipper, bright and friendly as ever! It was great to see him "out and about". We promise to not work him too hard if he attends the annual Exhibit and Sale on August 26. Dave is a founding member of the WPA - a wealth of pottery knowledge, and a very good friend to many in the club. We wish you the very best, Dave!!
