Portland’s Rain of Glass (PROG) is a nonprofit 501(c)(3), educational membership organization that was started  in 1978 to inform and educate individuals who have an interest in collectible glass. Every meeting, we have a time set aside to help with glass identification. Our extensive library of reference books is available to our members. We have several public glass displays each year and we have seminars and classes to educate our members and the community at large. PROG is Oregon’s oldest and largest Depression and Elegant Glassware organization.
