President Dan Y. reported on the meeting venue switch from the VFW to the Senior Center. In summary, we could not get the price and commitment that we thought we had agreed to with the VFW, forcing us back to the second choice of the Senior Center. Everyone seemed to be pleased with the Senior Center facility.
I gave a brief talk on the new “American Innovation” dollar coin series.
