As a member of Chapter 1 and Chapter 190 THE DREAMER IN ME LIVES ON! On Saturday, December 11, 2010, I’ll be 95 years of age and will be holding my 5 year annual Birthday Party (since I was 65 years old, 30 years ago) to which I invite family and friends. Of eight siblings, one sister age 92, remains. This affair is a by product of many other dreams that came true for me. Here’s another dream that will come true very shortly. Sometime this week I expect to get a phone call from Spike’s Trophies to come pick up a Plaque honoring a number of NAWCC members whom were the 52 Founders: 1st elected Officers, 1st elected Board Members and the electing Members as of November 7, 1943. In my personal opinion, as an NAWCC member for 46 years and as a dreamer, honoring our 52 founding members was long overdue. Please stop to think…what would you be doing today if it were not for these 52 people who loved horology...and as a result created the National Association of Watch and Clock Collectors. With much thanks to Markus Harris, my collaborator, in getting the names and ascension numbers together in order to create this Founders Plaque that will grace the entrance area of our world famous Horology Museum in Columbia, PA...the Museum has about 12,000 visitors each year. The Plaque has been paid for out of personal pocket. However, I have another dream that will need the help of the NAWCC Chapter members to make come true. The Dream...honoring our NAWCC members whom have given 50 years of their lives to this great Association. At this time, it may require 3 Plaques to list all the names of these 50 year members. I understand we may have close to 300 members in this category, and to leave room for future 50 year members. More to come on honoring our 50 year members in the near future!
