Club members and guests enjoyed a cover dish meal consisting of an 18 ft sub sandwich, baked beans, cold slaw and various fruits and desserts. Everyone had a great time. One big hit was Bob C.’s organic chicken. Not to mention all the yummy home made deserts and salads. We thank everyone for sharing the side dishes and participation. And let’s not forget Geri F’s fantastic potato salad.

A moment of silence was observed for Shirley Davis, mother of  member #62 Jody D. our Correspondent Secretary,  who passed away this past week.  Our condolence to Jody and family.
David explained the process of how the club’s auction tables are displayed.
Dave shared with the club an article about state silver one ounce bars selling for $57.00 each and were advertised as very limited!! This was in the club’s opinion a little overpriced$$$
Dave mentioned that our tables for our annual stamp and coin show are selling fast and will be another sellout. If you have not sent in the contracts for this show and want a table please do so quickly.
Frankie D. gave a brief on the deceptive advertising of Morgan silver dollars, showing a newspaper article.  Morgan dollars advertised for approx. $17.  GREAT PRICE!  Wrong.. fine print said these are copies.
