Goal Accomplished at Houston Vintage Market & Festival

Message from the President

Last year HVRA participated in Vintage Houston’s first ever Fashion Show in the Hobby Airport Museum. Based on the popularity of that event, we decided to do it again inside Houston’s historic Hobby Airport Terminal Museum. HVRA provided vintage radios playing music from the 50’s and 60’s next to a table where music from our transmitter could also be heard on crystal radios that were offered for sale.

If you have not visited this museum, you are in for a real treat as the exhibits will take you back to what air travel was like in 1940. Our goal was to acquaint the public with HVRA and that was accomplished in a big way. Did we gain new members from our participation? Dozens picked up membership applications along with club literature as well as Battleship Texas brochures, so time will tell. Our exhibit on Friday evening and all day Saturday was the most popular among the other exhibitors and vendors.  The goal was to acquaint the public with HVRA, so now hundreds more, know who we are and what we represent – goal accomplished!  Bill Werzner
