A word from the President

  Arising and shining like the sun with lots of fun!

Last meeting was another exciting night of fellowship and fun all the way around. We have four new members, and two visitors. They knew about our club thanks to our displays at the different local dealers. Our new program "Show and Tell" by Mr. Jones and Mr. Couch was great, followed by an excellent presentation on Confederate Currency by W.S.A.S. President, Mr. Tom Harden. The raffle was excellent and so was the auction. TBCC express its gratitude to those who help man the table at the last FUN show, NANCY, RUDY, HUGHE and myself, handing over a silver eagle to each of them as "symbolic" prize from the hands of our Treasurer Mr. Trottier. Regardless of this, believe it or not, Hughe won a second Silver Eagle: the attendance price.

TBCC Show Chairman, Mr. Mark Palermo, will conduct our next Tampa Bay Coin Show. It will take place at the beginning of next year, end of April or first weeks of May. We are looking for an appropriate local to have it. It will be a medium hall with parking facilities, food dispensing area, good neighborhood and affordable.

The educational program for the month of OCTOBER is titled United States gold dollars 1849-1889, by numismatist Mr. Bill Jones as guest speaker. Don't miss it. Our last medal for the year is now in the last stages before production commenced. We plan publish and article in the Coin World magazine before November. The final product from our excellent Medal Program, will be available FIRST RELEASE in November 11th for our members and at the 60th Annual FUN Convention in January 2015 for the general public. The auction next month will be great!  We will have many items up for auctions, something for everyone.  Come see for yourself!

Club Librarian, Mr. Stroman announced, that our library catalog is finished. More than 300 titles!. A copy will be available next month for each PAID member. The Christmas party will be held DECEMBER 9th at the "Golden Corral" restaurant located in 6942 West Hillsborough Ave., starting 6:30 PM. For more information contact club Treasurer Mr. Trottier or VP Mr. Taggart on our next gathering.

VERY IMPORTANT! Next meeting, we will have ELECTIONS for the people that will guide the club and represent you for next year. Nominations will be presented by the Board of Directors, and will be accepted from the floor as well. As you can see, you must be present and ready. The club need your vote!

On the day which is all about discoveries, take time to discover yourself and your inner strengths, HAPPY ...........................................

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

Best regards,

Joseph Crespo
