TMC Newsletter Issue 1, 2021 

 As we enter 2021, let’s all hope that we will return to ‘a new normal’ with our marble hobby along with visiting family and friends. As you know, we canceled our 2020 shows and our stay-at-home time made it difficult to produce our Newsletters. As we print this Newsletter, it seems that much of 2021 depends on the availability of the Covid vaccine. Our Board is optimistic and have contracts with hotels in Round Rock and Fort Worth for our Shows in 2021. We will keep you posted with our plans as we move forward.

This issue of the Newsletter is devoted to Akro Agate Marbles 

The Akro Agate company started in 1910 in Akron, Ohio. Their first packaged for sale marbles were made by M.F. Christensen. They moved and began production in Clarks-burg, West Virginia in 1914. They first made slag marbles. Akro was purchasing marbles from M.F Christensen in those early years.
