Today’s meeting was a great success. It was like having a mini stamp and  coin show.
A lot of our members brought items in for all of us to buy and sell.
Everyone had a lot of interesting things.
We had 74 members and guests come through our doors to have a great  time.
Our club signed up member # 195. We welcome Mr. Stan and a very Happy  Birthday to you.
Long time members whom we have not seen for a long time, Shirley S. Paul  N. and the Keating family.
Welcome back, it was very good to see all of you at our meeting.
David R. had a lot of fun walking around with our new mobile microphone.  Thanks Bob K. for making this possible.
Dave R. put on a short DVD presentation on old postal Valentine Cards. Dave  finally figured out how to set up and operate the Projector and Lap top. Way to  go Dave. Next meeting Dave hopes to learn how to turn on a cell  phone!
Mr. Jim Davis, Postmaster of Palm Coast, was our headline speaker. Jim gave  a very informative talk on what is going on at the post office and why the post  office is experiencing financial difficulties. Jim was presented a certificate  of appreciation along with our club pin and mug for his efforts in helping  our club with materials for our annual show.
Our 9th Annual Stamp and Coin Club is moving to the first Saturday in  March. This will be on March 2, 2013 and will now be held at the Elks Lodge, 53  Old Kings Road, Palm Coast, Fl 32137.

Back by popular demand is our 2nd semi-annual Collectable’s Auction at our  March Meeting. Along with our regular auction of stamps and coins all of our  members can bring in any collectable item for this auction.
Let’s have a lot of fun with this. Our first Collectable’s Auction was a  great success. Let’s make this one even better.
We thank everyone for making this club a great success.
Dave and Silvia R.
