Our Meetings

The Ottawa Valley Button Club meets eight or nine times per year at varied locations, usually at Ottawa Public Library meeting rooms. Prior to the business meeting there is an opportunity for members to socialize and buy, sell or trade buttons. There is usually a presentation relating to buttons. Topics can be buttons of a particular era, material, design, etc. Members are encouraged to bring items for a ‘Show & Tell’ portion of the meeting, as well as any buttons they have relevant to the program.

Guests are always welcome!
