July 4th, 1776, Independence Day
Independence: “ the state or quality of being independent;  freedom from the influence, control, or determination of another or others.”

We owe this to our ancestors that we continue to pass it on to future generations.

Dixon’s is rapidly approaching and so is the deadline date of July 13th to RSVP for the Summer Reception.  Let’s make this an event to remember.  Looking forward to seeing everyone there. >>Click Here to read the announcement of the Summer Reception.

I also wanted to mention that the theme for the HCH table display at Dixon’s will be “Horn Objects” and all members are encouraged to bring an object made from horn other than a powder horn.  Some examples  include, horn boxes, broaches, portable ink wells, combs, spoons, cups etc. It can be reproduction or original.  The items will be on display for the entire show and owners should claim at the closing.

Did you forget tickets for the raffle that will be held at Dixon’s?  You could win a Southern style powder horn, bag and accouterments.  They are all made by craftsmen from the South. The good news is that you can participate in raffle by purchasing tickets from this website and you do not have be present to win.  >>Click Here to get your raffle tickets.

Sincerely,

Ed Long
