On August 26, 2010, in Uncategorized, by Flagler County Stamp

At six p.m. meeting was called to order but not before Francine lost one of her stones that came loose from her ring. Thanks to a lot of our members whom went looking for it …It was Jim Hrnciar who found the stone all the way on the other side of the VFW hall…Francine was very, very, thankful and a big thank you to all who helped in trying to find it …We have a great bunch of philatelists and numismatists.

71 Members and guests were present with some that came and went, it was hard to keep up with the exact count.

Quite a few visitors brought in Stamp Collections, which included the Russian Stamps, Zeppelins, White Plains S.S. and the Pan American issues. What a sight it was for all to be able to see that and the coins that were brought in for appraising. The community is becoming more aware of us.
What a spectacular and fun meeting we had . Thank you all for coming out.

We introduced seven kids to the hobby of collecting stamps at our recent introductory class held at Belk’s Dept Store on Saturday August 7.

Ed Wolf and Maurreen were there to assist.

Bob Kegley will handle the membership.

Silvia Rosenthal will handle the mailings.

Francine Fatuzzo will take care of the vouchers, so if you win one of the door prizes go see her.

Our President and members all contributed great ideas on how to soak your stamps . Salt water to help get the stamps loose and wax paper to dry them on. One idea was to use the phone book to dry them between the pages which would keep the stamps from curling up.

The 50 /50 was won by Bob Kegley

The vouchers were won by #121 Kraze and #85 Dar.

Treasure report was given by the treasurer.

Diana Christen was at our meeting representing Family Life Center, which is also known as safe house for battered women and children in Bunnell. She was so thankful and overwhelmed by our First Charity Auction. Our club handed her $ $271.00. This would not have been possible without the support of all our members who brought in items to sell and of course our members who bid on these items.

39 of us stayed for the auction. Our tables were full of stamps, coins, and great artifacts brought in by Jean Pontorno.

Mike Belanich, Mike Nishti, Maria Tovar, Mike Rilley, and Janice for their tremendous generosity towards our First Charity Auction.
