Message from the President

Springs begins with lot of fun at TBCC!

In our March roundup, with attendance of over 35, including 5 new members, everyone was pleased, with lots of activity and FUNThe auction was impressive, well conducted by Mr. Omeara, with a single lot of 4 Euro specimen notes sold for $60!

The raffle included a 1886-S Morgan dollar as well several Proof U.S. Mint sets. Mrs. D'Amico, who joined the club that evening, won 3 prizes from the raffle, that's why you must join us! CONGRATS! The monthly attendance price was "conquered" AGAIN! by Mr. Taddia.

Very important, 
thanks to the efforts of the club directors, we are providing an atmosphere of camaraderie among all members and guests .. WHAT A TEAM!

After hearing
the minutes from our last meeting
, TBCC Bourse Chairman, Mr. Palermo, explained to all about the activities in place for our upcoming coin show, after a 5 years hiatus.

The guest speaker for the night was Mr. Ray Herz from the GJCC. He "delivered" a wonderful power point presentation tilted: A Survey of Art Medals, Part I. We learn a lot about this somehow "abandoned" topic of the numismatic field.

Speaking of medals, the last product from our Medal Program, celebrating 60th Years of our Club, is in the final stage of design as well, choosing the Mint that will carry on the job. I could be available around the summer. Keep checking with us via TWITTER!

Members who know of youth who are interested in numismatic, TBCC is planning to send at least 2 people to the Summer FUN day seminar in Orlando, contact us!

The educational presentation for April will be: Precious Metals Verifier Coin Tester presented by Historian, Mr. Steven Cochran, from Gainesville Coins of Lutz. Come see for yourself!

REMEMBER, our club will
conduct our next Coin Show on Saturday, APRIL 18th, 2015, from 9 AM to 3 PM at the Zendah Grotto Masonry Social Club:

The Officers and Directors wanted to wish each of you a ..................

Warmest thanks for all of your hard work and outstanding contributions,

Best regards,

Joseph Crespo
