Is there an Accordion Appreciation Society?

August 20, 2010

Dear DMC,

I see you have a nice section about Appreciation Societies on your website. I have often wondered whether there is an appreciation society for accordion fans. I found the button shown above but cannot find any website or other information about the Worldwide Accordion Appreciation Society.

I did find, however, a museum, the Cleveland accordion Museum. Perhaps it can be added to the Collections & Museums section of your website.

I didn’t know until the other day, when I was reading about Hedgehog Day (same day as Groundhog Day), that there’s an International Hedgehog Club. We’re adding it to our section on Appreciation Societies.

Button Societies

Hi Grover,

It was great meeting you & hope you had a safe and easy trip back home.

I checked out your site (loved it [exclamation point removed]) and it occurred to me that I belong to The National Button Society. I’m not sure if that’s dull enough to qualify but there’s always hope [exclamation point removed]

I also belong to the Pennsylvania Button Society, which is a little duller.

Stay Dull.

With Kind Regards,

Francine Schneider
