Minutes 01.06.11

The meeting was called to order by President, Bill G. There were 21 members and no visitors present. The minutes from the December Christmas dinner were read and approved.

Treasurer’s Report: Francis S. reported the year will be started off with the club in sound financial condition.

There was no old business to discuss.

New Business: A motion was made to increase our effort to get more young people involved in the club. To do this John E. was elected to be a go-between for the club and the Boy Scout Program. He will assist the scouts in working on the merit badge for coin collecting. John is very qualified in that he is an Eagle Scout with a coin collecting merit badge. The motion was seconded and passed.

A discussion was held about transportation for some of the older members who aren’t able to drive at night and would like to attend the coin club meetings. Some members volunteered to do this.

Starting in February, a coin grading seminar will be held at some of the meetings. This will be chaired by three of our members who have good grading skills. The expectation is that this can evolve into an expanded program to help collectors gain knowledge in identifying altered coins.

The meeting was concluded with an auction, show and tell, and the usual door and attendance prizes. The next meeting will be February 3rd.
