    June Pen Club Meeting

Friday November 17th 3pm-7pm - Saturday November 18th 10am-6pm​​​

Thank You to all of the attendees and dealers.  I have received very positive feedback about having the show at the Four Points by Sheraton.

NOTE: 30NOV17 -- I will put together a survey about this year's show over the weekend, so please check back in a few days and take a moment to fill it out.


I got a text message from Musette Lax who attended our last meeting. I asked her if it was ok to share.
'Several weeks ago already I talked to Mike (Krut) and we agreed to meet at the Farmington Hills Library. I thought he looked familiar when he walked in. He looked through all of my Dad's pens and was very helpful and thorough.  We were done with all the pens when I decided to pull out the receipts of past work on the pens that my dad had had kept.  Mike look at the receipts and said OMG your dad was Dr. Martin Charles! He goes, your dad was Marty?   It turns out that Mike knew my dad very well. Mike is an Attorney that my father did work for many many years. That's how I knew him as well I used to work for my dad and Mike hooked my dad up with the pen repair person on the receipts. Long story short it was a pleasure to see him and meet with him. We actually met with him a second time because I found more pens. He has just been more than helpful and kind and giving of his time as were you as well.'
