Meeting minutes for 8-27-12

Dave R. called the meeting to order at 6:02 PM. We had 55 members and guests attend.  33 members and guests stayed for the auction.

From 5:00 pm to 6:00 pm all the guests and members had a good time buying, selling, trading and looking over the auction lots. This is becoming one of the highlights of our monthly meetings. We encourage all of our members to participate. This is just one of the many benefits of membership.

Dave R. had the entire attendance stand up for a moment of silence in remembrance Danny R.’s brother and son who recently passed away. Our condolences go to out to Danny, Mindy and their family.

The paper work has been completed and our club is now incorporated. We have submitted to the IRS the proper forms and fees for our 501 (c) (3) non-profit status. This allows our club to accept tax deductable donations. This will open up many more avenues for us in the near future for donations nationwide. Thank you to C.L.W. for putting the club in touch with Mr. Bill Hancock, Attorney, who donated his time and effort filling out the paperwork. The club sent Mr. Hancock a framed certificate of appreciation signed by all the members that attended our meeting.

The club paid the VFW the meeting fees for 2013. Remember to support the VFW bar/food when attending our meetings. Thank you John R. for making this possible.

Our club welcomes three new members: #206 Henry U. #207 Elizabeth H. #208 Frank P.

In spite of the on and off  heavy rains we had a great turnout. Quite a few members stood up and shared many interesting things with us. And many came and added items to our growing treasure box. All who spoke and talked received an extra chance for the door prize vouchers.

Dave mentioned the Holiday Party to be held at the Golden Corral on Nov. 26th at 3:15 PM. More details will be sent to all. Mark your calendar for our annual stamp, coin and collectables show to be held at the Elk’s Lodge on Old Kings Road on March 2nd , 2013 and the annual home show to be held at Flagler Palm Coast High School on Jan. 26-27,2013. Our Annual Show Is A Sell Out. We thank everyone who is participating.

We especially thank Alva W. who at 92 years young still has tremendous stories to share with us all.

The club surprised Silvia R. with a beautiful bouquet of flowers and two gift cards for her birthday. Silvia thanked everyone. The entire club led by Ed W. sang Happy Birthday to Silvia.

The club had a very active auction. There were bargains for everyone. Dave R. did a reverse auction on 13 lots which is always a big hit with everyone.

Door prize vouchers were won by Paul S. and Paul N.  50/50 was won by Paul B. I guess it was great to be a Paul for this meeting!!

The member’s name that was pulled for the Treasure Box was Jim B. Jim and his wife Willa did not stay for the auction. Jim, you could have won tonight. Remember members, to win the Treasure Box you have to be present at the end of the auction.
