President Dave opened the meeting at 6:02 PM.

There were 78 members and guests present.

Before the meeting was called to order there was a lot of activity at the member tables.  Members brought in stamps and coins to buy and sell and the auction view table was full of great items to look over for our live auction.

There were a lot of visitors that brought in items for free appraisals, most of whom (or is it who) met our members at our table at the Flagler County Home Show.

Dave discussed the upcoming 9th Annual Stamp, Coin, and Collectables show to be held at the Elk’s Lodge. Members were asked to wear their club shirts to be recognized as a club member. Volunteers were asked to meet at 9:30PM March 1st to help set up tables.

Dave R. gave a report on the Library program held on Feb. 19th. Over 50 people attended this event. Jim D. gave a great talk on Abe Lincoln followed by Ed W. who always entertains us with his wit and humor. The News Tribune gave the club a great front page write up with photos of this event. Thank you Silvia R., Dave R., Jody D., Bill B., Joyce D., Phil S., Mike N., Francine F. and Bob K. for your help.

Thank you Helen E., Geri F., and Cathy C., for cutting out hundreds of stamps for our Library program and the Home Show and a special thank you to these wonderful ladies for all their behind the scenes help and support.

Our First Annual Fun Day Picnic will be held at Hershel King Sr. Park off Colbert Lane on the first Sat. in April. This will be April 6th, 2013.  Cooking will start at 11:00 AM. Members can start arriving at 10:00 AM. We have reserved the shelter for the entire day. The club will supply hot dogs, hamburgers, cheeseburgers and drinks and at 12:00 noon Pizza will be delivered. Members and guests that are attending need to bring a covered dish.

There will be a great youth area with special crafts, oldies music and board games for all adults to enjoy. Bring a lawn chair or two to enjoy the grounds. This park is on the intercostal waterway where you can watch the yachts float by. Bring a fishing pole and try your luck.

With a show of hands at the meeting we expect at least 100 members and guests.

Dave introduced all of our first time visitors and some long time no sees: Joe H., Chris and Pat DeP. Welcome back.

Ray H. was introduced and presented a slide show of the first Federal Mints in Philadelphia. We have had many presentations by Ray in the past and this one is one of his best. Ray comes from Jacksonville, FL and it is always a real treat to have him visit our club

A motion was made and seconded that Ray H. become our club’s first Honorary Member.

By a show of hands and applause this motion was unanimously approved. Ray will be given the H1 designation on his membership card.

There was a great auction and Dave had some fun with his reverse auction.
