July 1st Membership Meeting


Club meeting called to order at 7:15 pm by President Glenn Dean.

Glen then briefed members about our club's Summer picnic on Saturday, August 2nd starting at noon and running through the afternoon:

A reminder that there will be a Kenai Fair Coin Show to be held in conjunction with the Kenai State Fair (August 15th through August 17th), Event will be held at the State Fair Grounds in Ninilchik (located at 16200 Sterling Highway. You can contact Tom Dalrynple (home # 907- 262-6733) if you would like to have a table at that coin show. If you are in the area, go see the fair and the coin show.

In last month's newsletter, member Stan Mead announced plans for the club to conduct class presentations over two days at the Girl Scout "Biennial Encampment 2015" to be held at the Alaska State Fair Grounds in Palmer (in mid June, 2015). Presentations will be for approximately 200 Girl Scouts to get their merit badges in coin collecting. Stan and Ruth Mead will be heading up the presentations..... and are in need of items/funding for the event. A similar event was held in June 2013 with very good success. Discussion by membership. Consensus by membership to use one of our meeting dates (between now and June 2015) be used as a donation auction in which the funds raised will be allocated for this program.

New member, Andres Macias, is also a member of the Alaska Miners Association and offered use of his Miners Association Show for our club tables. Good interest shown by members in attendance. To be discussed further by Board when they hold their Board meeting on July 16th.

Monthly raffle prize, an 1898-O U.S. Morgan Dollar in MS63+ condition won by Maribel Nakata. Coin was subsequently given to club as a donation coin for the club's monthly auction. Presentation given by Allen Nichols on the subject of "Building a Mint Set Collection." Following presentation, club's monthly auction held. Meeting concluded at about 8:20 PM.
