President’s Column
Hello all,
And welcome to… August? Seriously? Where has this summer gone? I guess since I was in school I didn’t notice. Well I hope all of you have been enjoying the warm weather, the long days, and maybe a vacation or two. If not, then the club picnic will afford the perfect opportunity to just kick back and soak up what remains of summer.
We could have quite a crowd at the picnic considering how packed our second meeting was last month. Between our regular attendees recovering from show-verload, and several new members joining, we really had a full house. Anyway, a warm welcome to our new members. With raffles, auctions, show & tell, and various drawings there’s always something fun to look forward to at the meetings.
This month, there are some special events to look forward to. At our first regular meeting we’ll have a bourse night. Whether you’re looking to find additions for your own collection, or find new homes for your extras, the mini-coin show of bourse night is the perfect opportunity. Our second meeting is important for anyone looking leave their mark on the club’s history by designing the club medal for next year. Design submissions must be received by the second meeting this month, so mark your calendars if you’re interested. The end of summer is drawing near, but we’ll fill it with plenty of fun.
- Aaron “Show-verload” Brown
