Hotdog Potluck Night &

Speaker, Ray Johnson

“OPA Tokens”


We would like to welcome everyone to our Hotdog Potluck Night, so come hungry and enjoy some good company with your fellow hobbyist! The club will supply the Hotdogs/Polish dogs, Potato Salad and drinks. We ask the rest of the members to bring in desserts and other items that you would like to share with the rest of the group.

Our speaker will be long time member, Ray Johnson who will be speaking on “OPA Tokens.” Ray will share his knowledge of these tokens and how they came about during the war when everything was being rationed to help with the war efforts here in our country. So, come on out and enjoy an interesting story from Ray, he has given many talks over the years and makes it interesting.

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 and Tell, Refreshments 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.
