Speaker, Matthew Downing
“How to Spread This
also our annual
“Food Drive for Second Harvest Food Bank”
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!
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.
