Dave R. spoke about the new upside down Jenny souvenir sheet that was issued on 9-23-2013. These sheets are in very limited supply at the post office and can not be reordered. This could be a good item to pick up. Face value on this sheet is $12.00 consisting of 6 $2.00 stamps on each sheet. Dave had several that were sold for the good of the club at $15.00 per sheet to cover cost of obtaining these sheets. Dave will have a few more at the October meeting.

Dave R. reminded everyone that the Holiday Party will take place at the Golden Corral Restaurant in PalmCoast. Everyone attending must be at the Golden Corral 2:45 PM, at the latest, so the club can take advantage of the senior lunch prices which ends at 3:00 PM. GOOD NEWS, the dinner menu starts at 4:00 PM at no additional charge and there will be a surprise activity that will start at 3:00 PM that everyone will enjoy.

A motion was made Francine F. and seconded by Paul S. that Dave R. be reimbursed for expenses for the lap top computer that is used for the club. Motion Passed. Another motion by Helen E. and seconded by Geri F. was made to spend $50.00 to place our Annual show at FloridaStampShows.com.
