Celebrate Valentine’s Day, Sunday, February 14, 2021.

Congratulations to Mark Fine, SBCS Zoom Ringmaster, for starting the 2021 ZOOM Calendar with this distinguished guest. Mark’s stewardship of the Zoom gatherings that were established to bridge the loss of 2020 activities has morphed into a well-received benefit of membership in the Souvenir Building Collectors Society. The 2021 Zoom meetings are scheduled bimonthly on the 2nd Sunday at 2PM Eastern Time. The 2021 Calendar is below.
The first Zoom meetings in 2020 were based in our classic Show & Tell format from the annual meetings. Participants shared stories about their new finds and long held treasures. In October Mark interviewed Jon Merwine soon after his publication of Replica Buildings – A Visual History was published. Then in December Anton Tremblay, long-time member and founder of Microcosms was featured.
These interactive Zoom meetings are only open to current members of the Souvenir Building Collectors Society. All current members are sent an email a few days before the event. Registration is by reply to the email. The emails contain instructions for registration and for accessing Zoom. Memberships are now due for 2021.
