Roserita Ziegler Recipient of 2011 Ed Tell Award.....By Millie Coty







The Edward V. Tell Education Award was given to Roserita M. Ziegler, via telephone, during the 2011 NFGS convention.  Roserita has long been a true supported of the NFGS and all it stands for, holding membership #8.  In the early days, she contributed to The Fenton Flyer, gave talks, did antique and glass shows, identifications, and etc.  The Fenton 'signing event' was a Roserita creation in the early 80's, first held at the Sage-Allen department store in Hartford, CT. 

John Newman accepted the award, then delivered it to Roserita at her beach home at Old Saybrook, CT.  

Congratulations, Roserita!!
