Club Meetings


The Midwest Antique Fruit Jar & Bottle Club holds monthly meetings in the Central Indiana area, primarily in Muncie. Meetings are usually the first Sunday of the month, but often will be moved to avoid conflict with holidays and bottle shows. The typical meeting consists of a short business meeting, a show-and-tell session, and a program.
