Message from the Officers and Directors

Our sweeping advance towards the future of numismatics in the Tampa Bay area is unstoppable. We are managing to reach all those attending our meetings with, an afternoon full of knowledge and fun, something difficult to achieve, to serve all those who love this hobby.

With more than
40 participants and two new members, we enjoyed the presentation of the night spectacularly prepared by Numismatist and professional grader,  Mr. Michael "Skipp" Fazzari from ICG with a great topic: "How to detect coins with altered surfaces".

Beside the regular raffle, which get's much better every month [Morgan, Peace dollars, Mint & Proof sets, etc.], our President made a request of the presents who would like to assist in manning the club table at the upcoming FUN show in January 2016, here in Tampa. Anyone interested approach any of the Board members.

Now you must prepare for the next meeting, TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 8th, same place, same time. The lecture for that night will be conducted by our charismatic Director Mr. Omeara, title Indian Head Cents, subject in which he is an avid collector and researcher.

Mr.Omeara spoke to members who would like to become part of the Board of Directors. ELECTIONS are coming in OCTOBER, please volunteer for a position, larger members  participation produces less work for everyone. Remember......YOU, are the club.

Ah, don't forget you have a chance to win a "Silver Eagle" for attendance prize. .... all we need is you, to enjoy all this and have fun again. Don't be a "no show"  your club needs your participation, cooperation, involvement and presence. The winner this month was Mr. Martini.

The Christmas dinner/meeting was announced one more time by our Treasurer. It is going to be on DECEMBER 8th, at a Golden Corral, like last year, which by the way, we had a great time with our friends and family. The 1st. attendance prize for that night will be a gold coin!

We are looking for another place to meet, the present one is excellent but some of our members feel we need more parking area.  If you know of one, please let one of the board members know.

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
