There were 35 members present at the
February meeting which was brought to order by president, Peter
Jones. There were four dealer tables selling coins, etc. The
secretary's report was accepted as promulgated in the last meeting
notice. The treasurer's report was accepted. The balance of funds
in the checking account was stated to be $10,965.90. Gene Kessler
won the membership prize and Bill Jacobik, the 50/50 prize.
……Previously, this club voted to
set aside money that would help a Young Numismatist financially
attend an educational forum on numismatics. The ANA Sumer Seminar
was the forum intended. If we do not have a qualified person here,
perhaps NENA could suggest one from outside this club. Donat Charron
will explore this in more detail with representatives of NENA and we
will go from there. Subsequently, John Ferreri suggested that
those funds could, at less expense and confusion, fund someone to
attend the NENA Conference in Manchester, NH in the fall and
participate in the YN program there where the dollar will go a much
longer way. We will decide tonight which direction we want to go.
(See the attachment for a little more on this subject.)

book about Collecting Liberty $20 Gold Coins
ahead………… approval of anything
different than the $150 yearly donation to the Library will be
needed. Otherwise, we will set that aside for disbursement at the end
of the season. And there is a good possibility of not having a
newsletter for the month of April (the last meeting of the season) as
I probably won't be able to get it out on time, we'll see!
There will definitely be a meeting!
