Members sing Happy Bday to Vera B.

Bob K. gives Treasurer’s Report. How he keeps money in there with Silvia buying all that candy and cookies is a wonder.

Mike N. reviews his letter sent to Treasury Sec’y Lew re: women on paper money and the fact that we’ve already had one…Martha Washington on the $1. Mike still has the first day cover that he got at the bank when the bills were first issued in 1886. Dave was with him. I know…I’m evil.
One of our visitors says he’s written the Treasury Dept. to protest the future change in the $20 bill. He says Jackson should remain on the front and Harriet Tubman should be on the reverse.
