July 28,1948 - July 29, 2014

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.  

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!
