…..The New England
Numismatic Association (Nena) the regional organization that supports
a convention and YN activities twice a year in New Hampshire would
like to persuade some of our members to author a short article or two
over the next year or two for inclusion in its quarterly newsletter
sent to hundreds of members throughout New England and beyond. The
pamphlet sized newsletter has been carrying 4-6 short articles from
various club's members on various subjects. Nena is offering a
free one year membership to anyone sending an article. Some of our
members have done so and their articles have been or will be
published. It is fun to write and gain the satisfaction of seeing
your thoughts published for fellow collectors to read. For
additional information or help with an article please ask John
Ferreri via the email address shown in the header or at this meeting.
Share your knowledge with the rest of us! Become
a member of Nena and read the interesting articles submitted by your
74 tables were sold to
dealers and one was provided, free of charge to the organizations
headed up by John Frost. Parking was a little harder than in the
past due to the University not letting "outsiders" use the lots
behind the venue building due to renovations on some buildings there.
We won't know the exact figures (profit/loss) until the WMPD
charges are in but it looks like we will end up on the profit side by
about $2000 which is right in line with previous years. Show profits
help fund our other activities including YNs.
Thanks to all who have
helped with the annual show and supported other club activities
during the year. We are grateful to have you all as members!
