Welcome to our website!
Lake Erie Chapter 28 is a member chapter of the The
National Association of Watch and Clock Collectors, NAWCC. Our chapter
is comprised of members from Northeastern
Ohio and Western Pennsylvania who are committed to furthering the study of the science of Horology.
This is accomplished through our chapter meetings and marts and through our
chapter's efforts to
educate its members through classes and workshops.
Chapter 28 is eager to share its knowledge with the
communities where member reside. We open our regional and national
exhibits to the general public to enjoy and learn about the displayed
timepieces. Chapter 28 also sponsors periodic clock and watch
identification road show reviews where
the general public can bring in their family timepieces in order to learn
more about their treasures.
If you are not a member, please consider joining us. Please
contact our Chapter Secretary at
firstname.lastname@example.org. You will share great times with fellow members and friends who share your
passion of watch and clock collecting, repairing and trading.

March 5, 2017 Chapter meeting in
the Oliver Hazard Perry Elementary School was built. In the hall of that
school was a hall clock. A man ( a current NAWCC member-Thomas Ruffing)
who went to that school said that a new school of the same name is being
built. This man would like to know if anyone went to the school and if they
may have any idea of what may have happened to that old clock. His
objective is to find that old clock and have it restored and have it
installed in the hall of the new school. If you have any ideas of its
location or even a photo of the old clock, please contact: Mary Louise

FROM THE SECRETARY
When the list of clock and/or watch repairmen was created, it was done so
that anyone could find a repair person within their locale. It was never a
list of certified nor evaluated persons. It was a list of members who
volunteered their own name. I have no way to prove or disapprove their
quality of workmanship. It is no surprise that someone on the list did not
turn out to be of good quality. In this case “buyer beware” is to be
understood. I, the secretary, in one year, have suggested names from the
list more than 40+ times. No one ever called me back to say whether the
repair person was good or bad. When I do get a call, I always inform
the caller that I cannot guarantee the workmanship. Please, in the future,
if you do hand out the name and number of anyone on the list, tell the
caller the same. You can not guarantee the workmanship.
