President Dan Y. was unable attend to his vacation commitment, and V.P. Ken S. filled in for him.
We had 3 new members join us, bringing the membership to 70 members strong.
Treasurer Carl D. gave his financial report.
The Attendance prize was won by Greg W. The membership prize was not won, so it goes up another $5.
A vote has held on the motion to postpone the August meeting by one week, as the normal meeting conflicts with the American Numismatic Convention in Denver from Tuesday, August 1 through Saturday, August 5. Motion made, seconded and carried. The August meeting will be on August 11, then the meetings go back tom the normal 1st Friday of the month routine.
Members were reminded that the “biggie” coin show of the year will be in Denver this year. It’s a once in a decade (or longer) opportunity, as the convention rotates (next year it’s in Philadelphia). Check it out at www.money.org. There are activities for absolutely newB collectors, kids and young numismatists, to experienced know it all coin codgers. Free admission to ANA members. Highly recommended by me!
The current officers were re-elected for another year by acclimation:
President: Dan Y.
Vice President: Ken S.
Treasurer: Carl D.
John B. was also elected to be the Secretary for the next year.
The auction list will be sent out with the August meeting notice. Enjoy your 4th of July!
