Minutes of Meeting July 22 2013

On July 23, 2013, in Uncategorized, by Flagler County Stamp



49 members and guests attended.


Our president, Dave R., opened the meeting at 6:00 PM.

After welcoming everyone that came, Dave mentioned that this was the fourth Monday of a five Monday month. The weather was wet and attendance was a little down due to the summer months.


Dave spoke about the need to upgrade our PowerPoint projector and the need to purchase glassine envelopes for stuffing stamps and coins for our educational programs. The glassine envelopes that the post office has always donated to us are no longer available. Dave mentioned that our club does have the funds for these purchases. Francine F. made a motion and it was seconded by Phil K. to look into getting a projector for the club. Approved by majority vote. Bob K. will look into repairing the projector we have and the price of a new one.  Francine F. made a second motion and it was seconded by Jody D. to purchase glassine envelopes. Approved by a majority vote. Dave R. will order the glassine envelopes.


A lot of lively discussions were given and heard by a lot of our members. Some of the subjects included the availability of silver and gold to purchase in bulk, post office shipping problems that one of our members had, and fraudulent schemes both present and past that our members have encountered. This was a lot of fun and gave a lot of good advice to our members.


Special hand made bags were given out to 29 lucky members who attended our meeting. This was a lot of fun. Dave had all the winners line up and then took turns picking through all the different designs.


We thank Dan and Edith F., Jean P., and Joe H. for donating items for the good of the club it is very much appreciated. We thank all of our members who consistently donate items for the good of the club. This helps to cover our expenses at every meeting and our members love bidding on these items.


BIG NEWS: Shortly before the meeting started the British Royals announced the birth of a new son. Third in line to the Throne of England.
