President Dave R. called the meeting to order at 6:00 PM.

After getting all the members and guests attention, Dave had everyone stand for a moment of silence for our dear departed Florian B. Florian was always at the sign in table with his wife, Vera. Florian will be greatly missed by all.

Dave R. asked everyone to keep Francine’s mother in their prayers for a speedy recovery.

Before the meeting started there was tremendous activity shared by everyone. Trading, buying and selling both stamps and coins have now become a landmark for our club. Let’s all bring in our items of interest in to share with our members and guests.

Dave R. and Silvia R. showed pictures of their Alaska cruise on the newly donated movie screen (thanks Bob K.) before the meeting started.

Dave R. spoke about their trip and had a very special coin and a keepsake for all that attended from Skagway, Alaska. Given to each was a very rare “gold” coin commemorating the United States vice-presidential run by Sarah Palin!! Also, a good luck Horseshoe Penny from Skagway commemorating its 100th anniversary in the year 2000.

Dave R. gave everyone an opportunity to guess the difference between a caribou and a reindeer. After several members expressed their opinion on this important matter, Dave finally told everyone that the only difference is that reindeer FLY!!

As a reminder, there are five Mondays in July and we will have our regular monthly meeting on the fourth Monday, July 22, 2013.
