Alex Prizgintas elected new president of Hudson Valley Bottle Club


The Hudson Valley Bottle Club has a new president. At 18, Alex Prizgintas is the youngest member to hold the position. “I am fortunate to inherit the presidency from Mike Stephano who has done an exceptional job. He has presided over the growth of the Bottle Club’s August show, which in my opinion, has become one of the best antique and bottle shows in the Hudson Valley. If you haven’t had the opportunity to attend the show, I would encourage you to stop by on August 19th and learn a little more about our region’s history in glass production, maybe bring an antique bottle from home to learn more about both it’s history and value, and pick up a bottle or two to either start a collection or decorate your home,” explains Prizgintas. “The Hudson Valley has a rich history in glass, bricks, dairy, and railroads; learning about our heritage creates a stronger bond to our community.”

Alex Prizgintas will be attending Marist College in the fall with a double major in both History and Music. “I’m glad I will be attending college here in the Hudson Valley which has nurtured my deep respect and understanding for our past.”
For more information about the Hudson Valley Bottle Show (or bricks, dairy and railroads!), please contact Alex Prizgintas at 845-774-9723.
