Message from the Officers and Directors

Nor Hale, nor Rain, will keep our club members away from their monthly meeting.  We had a big turn over again despite the bad weather; where else are you going to spend a fun filled, numismatic evening?

Due to extreme personal situations, our President Joseph Crespo was not able to attend the meeting tonight, therefore our "fun-master" and VP, Mr. Taggart took over and did a magnificent job aided by Rick S., Tracy T., Albert O. and the rest of the Board members. We have to mention that our VP, Mr. Taggart, managed to get from the public during the show, donations for 35 medals, strike by the club from our MEDAL PROGRAM. He is a great asset to our club and we are very grateful for all he does for club and all of you!

Beside the regular raffle, which get's much better every month [Morgan, Pecae dollars, Mint & Proof sets, etc.], we had a very interesting lecture on the Wisconsin, State Quarter, cornstalk leaf error, by Mr. Jack Iaci. The Christmas dinner/meeting was announced 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!

Those who participated and helped at our table at the Summer Fun Show in Orlando, were awarded silver eagles coins for their help & cooperation. We hope that many others follow their example and do the same in the future. Now you must prepare for the next meeting, TUESDAY, AUGUST 11th, same place, same time. Our guest for that night will be Numismatist and professional grader,  Mr. Michael "Skipp" Fazzari from ICG with a great topic: "How to detect coins with altered surfaces".

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. Gazi.

At the FUN SHOW, we were congratulated  and praised by many important members of the numismatic community. People are very happy to see the TBCC back on top of the numismatic scale in Florida. Almost everyone likes our site and many think it's the best on-line, together with our TWITTER page. 

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.

ELECTIONS are coming in OCTOBER, please volunteer for a position, larger members  participation produces less work for everyone. Remember......YOU, are the club.

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

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

Best regards,

Joseph Crespo
