By the end of the month, we will be sending our updating mailing lists to CMOG for the issuance of your 2018 membership cards.
For those of you who havent yet renewed, Im sure youre tired of the nudging, but not half as tired as I get when the process drags out for 4 months. Memberships are very important as they allow us to keep our website active, those ever-interesting Gazettes in your inbox, and of course the opportunity to visit CMOG and attend our fabulous symposium. And while youre attending the symposium in October, you might be doing your holiday shopping using your members discount in the CMOG shop.
If you are unsure of your status, please feel free to email me at any time (firstname.lastname@example.org). You can renew through the website or by sending a check ($35 single, $55 for a 2-person household) to our treasurer, Steve Skalsky at 12431 East Cloud Rd, Chandler, AZ 85249.

Calcite proved to be an ideal material to apply the Aurene iridization to,...
Gold lined calcite items proved most popular and were made in a multitude of shapes, sherbets with matching plates, berry bowls, compotes, vases, salt dips, and sundry other items. The Aurene gold is usually found on the interior of the ware; however, items were made where the iridized portion is on the exterior surface and the Calcite forms the usable portion. Blue lined Calcite was made in the same forms, and items as its gold lined counterpart.
In iridized Calcite items, the exterior surface will usually be coated with a soft, mellow, subtly clear, iridized layer.
The merchandising of Calcite was due entirely to one man. His name was Charles Potter, and he was employed as a salesman by Mr. Carder. Those familiar with merchandising techniques know that a salesman armed with a product he himself is sold on, and has developed an appropriate "pitch" to go with it, is dynamite. Charles Potter was dynamite.
