Minutes of Meeting January 26 2015

On January 28, 2015, in Uncategorized, by Flagler County Stamp


After opening the doors at 5:00 pm Dave R. started the meeting at 6:00 PM.

A moment of silence was given for  Mr. Warren Setup and Mr. Alva Whitney , both who passed on to their final collectors bourse above. They will greatly be missed by everyone;  we were all very lucky to have known both of these fine gentlemen.

Dave R. thanked everyone who helped man the tables at the home show on Sat. and Sun. and enjoyed all the members that stopped by to say hello. The Home Show was a great success and we talked to a lot of collectors and individuals that had questions about inherited collections of stamps and coins.

Our upcoming 11th Annual Stamp and Coin Show will take place on March 7th, 2015 at the Elks Lodge on Old Kings Road from 10:00 AM till 3:00 PM.  Dave said that there are a couple of tables still available for this event. If interested in a table please contact Dave at 386-437-0368. The Boy and Girl Scouts can earn their merit badges at this show and will be taught by Charlie C. and Lisa (Jacobs Mom)

We are going to have a Chinese Auction at the March Show as we have had in the past shows. We need members to bring in collectable items to be donated for the good of the club for this. This can be stamps, albums, supplies, coins, gold (oh sure, bring us some gold) silver (see previous note) or interesting items. Please ask the business that you frequent for a gift certificate. Most will give if you ask.  This could be your barber, beauty salon, auto service, restaurants, food stores, etc.  This is a great and fun way for the club to raise funds and keep our dues so low each year.

We had a lot of fun with Dave’s stand up auction. A lot of bargains were won by all.

Remember each member can bring anything they want to sell, trade and share before and after the meeting. If you need a table just let us know when you enter.

In our new contract with the V.F.W., we can not be in the building before 5:00 PM. Our club can stay as late as we want.
We need help from the members to set up the auction tables at each meeting.  And remember that we have to put the tables back at the end of the meeting.

Thank you Silvia for providing the sandwiches for the Home Show.
Thank you Frankie D. for the Post Office Updates and for a busy auction.
Thank you to everyone who help to set up tables for our meetings.
