Speaker Ray Johnson

 “Tips on Exhibiting”


Togo’s Food Night”


We want to welcome everyone to come on out and help us celebrate our Annual Food Night with a Togo’s Dinner. So, come hungry and enjoy some good company. We are asking everyone to bring in a side dish of salad, egg rolls, chips, dips, cookies, ice cream, cake, pie, brownies or what ever you’d like for desert.


Our speaker tonight will be Life Member, Ray Johnson, who will be speaking on “Tips on Exhibiting”. This is a fun project and helps to explain how to take notes and built up an idea for an exhibit. We all have coins or numismatic items, that tell a story and that’s what exhibiting is all about. Ray has been a speaker for SJCC many times and has come up with some unique ways of sharing his topics.  This topic is pursued by many coin clubs and show sponsors. They are always looking for folks to exhibit and most will give an award or nice numismatic item for entering for both competitive and non-competitive groups. Be a team player for SJCC and learn how to exhibit.

Also, be sure to bring smaller dominations of cash to make it easier on our auction chair to make change. 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.           

Guests are welcome!
