During these unprecedented times, we would like to take a moment and thank each and every one of our customers for hanging in there with us during the shutdown. Many of you have been asking about upcoming events, including our West Virginia Day Celebration!
The Coronavirus pandemic took approximately two months of production away from us at Blenko Glass. A significant part of that loss was the production of the annual WV Birthday piece. Therefore, this event, originally scheduled for Saturday, June 20 will be postponed. We know that many of our customers come from far and wide to purchase a West Virginia Day piece so we are currently exploring ideas for a belated birthday celebration!
To celebrate this year, we are proposing the Birthday piece be offered after Labor Day - sometime in September. Exact details are uncertain at this time but distribution will not be the typical event with campers and a parking lot full of customers. We wish to play it safe and avoid large gatherings of people, many of whom will be visiting from out of state.
Stay tuned for more details as the year unfolds!
