Message from the Officers and Directors

Like it's the last game of the baseball World Series, full of excitement and surpriseswe are changing the way people is enjoying the king of hobbies in the Tampa Bay area, with evenings full of knowledge and fun, something difficult to achieve, to serve all those who love this hobby.

Our "ballpark" was well attended. With more than
40 members presents and one guest, we enjoyed the presentation of the night well done by our Director Mr. Omeara, with a popular but always welcome topic: "Indian Head Cents".
 He exhibited some Indian Head "gems", including a superb 1877 in MS64. Simply, he just hit a "home run" for the delight of the audience. Bravo!

Beside the regular raffle, offering 4-5 Morgan, Peace dollars, Walking Liberty eagles, and 8-10 Proof or Mint Sets, which get's much better every month, we 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. Our VP, Mr. Taggart, was responsible for the "Show and Tell", showing of a fake 1894 Barber half dollar.

As a way of saying thanks for "hold the fort", metaphorically speaking, diplomas recognizing work as past Presidents were awarded to Mr. Valentin (2013) and Mr. Kinney (2007-2008) on behalf of the ANA and our club. Mr. Granger had the honor of hand over the awards!

Now you must prepare for the next meeting, TUESDAY, OCTOBER 13th, same place, same time. The lecture for that night will be conducted by guest speaker Mr. John Pentenero, from West Hernando Club, title "Why you should consider collecting paper money", subject which has a broad future, but little discussed in coin clubs.

Mr.Omeara spoke to members who would like to become part of the Board of Directors. ELECTIONS are coming NEXT MONTH, 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. Taddia.

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
