54 THE DISTRIBUTOR’S LINK MID-WEST FASTENER ASSOCIATION PO Box 5, Lake Zurich, IL 60047 TOLL-FREE 1-800-753-8338 TEL 847-438-8338 EMAIL WEB MWFA PRESENTS FSTNR WEEK by Nancy Rich August 16th-20th In keeping with the concerns of safety for our members, the MWFA has chosen to move some of their events to later in the year to allow time for more normalcy. To make it easier for industry and your personal scheduling we have put our major events into one week. This is what the week looks like. COVID 19 protocol will be followed at all events. August 16th Basic Print Reading Seminar - 9:00am-12:00pm Belvedere Banquets, Elk Grove, IL Attendees will have the opportunity to learn: what are prints, types of prints, understanding what is on prints, technical components of prints and part to print recognition. August 17th MWFA Fastener Show - 12:00pm-4:00pm Belvedere Banquets, Elk Grove, IL The Mid-West Fastener Association will host their 39th Table Top Show on August 17th, 2021. Fastener ASSOCIATION ARTICLE suppliers are invited to showcase their products and/or services at this one-day show. The MWFA hosts an annual Table Top Show allowing suppliers a convenient venue to showcase as they do at other shows but at a more economical fee and in the heart of the fastener industry. The fastener industry has the luxury of being able to showcase their product in a booth or Table Top environment. The MWFA appeals to all exhibitors by offering each every other year. Exhibitor registration is being accepted at this time. The floor plan will be finalized six weeks before the show based on COVID regulations. At that time we will reach out to exhibitors, for exhibit selection, in the order registrations were received Exhibit space includes: Skirted 6’ x 30” table, 2 chairs, table company sign, two lunches, and free attendee passes. 75th Anniversary/Hall of Fame Dinner - 6:00pm Venuti’s Ristorante, Addison, IL It all started when the average cost of a new house was ,600, average wages were ,500 (yes, a year), gas was 15 cents a gallon, coffee was 85 cents for 2 pounds, a new car was ,120 and the first electric blanket came out. 1946 was the debut of the Chicago Bolt, Nut & Screw Association. Some probably wondered if this would be a shortlived men’s club. Fast forward, time has come to prove this was a group with a purpose and the energy, ambition, and dedication to continue for many years. CONTINUED ON PAGE 184
