It is with great sadness that we have to announce that Ron
Ishizaki has passed away from congestive heart failure. Ron was member#1106
who joined SJCC in May 1980. Ron was also inducted into the SJCC Hall of Fame
in 2013. Ron leaves behind a lot of history and devotion to our club and the
numismatic community in general. Ron just celebrated his 66th birthday with
his wife Connie Ishizaki, the day before. He leaves behind two daughters
Karen and Bonnie and 8 grandsons and 1 granddaughter. Our sincere condolences
sent to his family, friends and loved ones at this time.
More information will follow for a memorial service from his family.

“Other Hobbies Night”
This meeting will prove to be most interesting
as its “Other Hobbies Night”. Here you can bring any item that you
collect to share with us, even if its numismatic related.There is a time limit for sharing your
other hobby so that everyone gets a chance to share. So, we ask that your
talk be 3 minutes or less to be fair with all. Things shared in the past,
legos, pep pins, comics, tooth pick holders, coin glass, misc toys,
dolls, railroad ties, old medicine bottles, genealogy, photography, Pez,
etc.Come early and set up your
hobby for viewing.
sure to bring smaller dominations of cash to make it easier on our
auction chair to make change. We are still looking for an auction chair,
if interested; contact someone on the SJCC Board.

kind during the programs. Also talking when programs and speakers
are presenting are prohibited. There is a break to conduct any business
