Wednesday November 12, 2014

Speaker, Matthew Downing

“How to Spread This Wonderful Hobby”


also our annual

 Food Drive for Second Harvest Food Bank”

Donations Needed!

For the evening we will have our Junior President, Matthew Downing be the speaker tonight. This will be his first time speaking at our club and wants to share his love of the hobby. Matthew is a very talented young man who came to our club in November of 2011 and has stepped right up to help with club activities. He is currently our Junior President, the Auction Runner and helps with Show & Tell at every meeting. He is very active in school, works part time, helps at our show and helps a couple of dealers at other shows behind their tables. His favorite thing to do is find a good coin at a good price. He sorts pennies and looks at bags of them for dates and copper verses zinc. He has some of his friends help him with these tasks and has brought some of his pals to our meetings. Well, tonight he is going to talk to us about “How to Spread this Wonderful Hobby”, and from what I understand this is going to be how to attract young people to our hobby and what he’s learned. Please join us and support this young man who is living his life as a part time coin dealer and collector.

Well, as we enter Fall and clocks have all been turned back; it gets dark earlier and closer to some good home cooked meals and desserts. We want to start off by wishing everyone a “Happy Thanksgiving” and to please support our club in collecting canned goods, non-perishable goods, cash or check for the Second Harvest Food Bank. This is for a good cause and helps homeless people, seniors, veterans and families struggling to make ends meet. You could make a difference in someone’s life!

Also, be 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.

Please take note that there is to be no business of any kind during the programs. Also talking when programs and speakers are presenting are prohibited. There is a break to conduct any business you might have with a dealer or member.  Repeat offenders will be asked to leave the meeting.

We will have an Auction, Show & Tell, Refreshments, Speaker and a Drawing towards the end of the meeting.  See list of drawing prizes below.   We also ask that everyone help with the clean up of the room and putting chairs away.           

Guests are welcome!
