                    ........The September Meeting…....

  • There were 45 members and guests in attendance. The treasurer's report was read and accepted. The balance stated was $10,189.17. The projected expense for the YN program we will be supporting will be just over $1000, some of which has already been figured into the above figure. Three YNs have applied and been accepted by our overseeing board and so far 4 Boy Scouts and 2 scout leaders will be added to that total.

    …..Charles Gilbert won the Membership Prize and Bill Jacobik won the 50/50 drawing. Thanks go to Bill and his house guest Sheree for putting on a very nice spread of refreshments. Sheree is a guest to New England from New Zealand.

    …..Officer nominations for the 2-year term were opened and will close with the October meeting. Anyone wishing to help officiate in any capacity is welcomed to make his name known before the voting begins. The incumbent officers were given a non-binding vote of approval but that doesn't preclude others from making it known that they would also be available for certain offices should the need arise.

    …..Julie Morrison and her dad Dave attended the meeting as guests. Julie is one of the YNs going to the Expo in Manchester, NH next month.

    …..Daniel Meunier of Johnston, RI was accepted as a new member.

    …..The program that was to be given will be rescheduled to a different meeting night.

    …..There were two exhibits "on stage" and "Show and Tell" produced: a charm bracelet made from pennies, an 1862 Civil War Dog Tag that was recently madebut unknowingly bought by on of our members, various rare small size U.S. bills, one being a Hawaii Sil. Certificate Star note, another being a 1928 FRN $100 with district "numera" instead of "letter" as we see today. A Bogg's note which was rarely printed on both sides by that famous artist, a pair of Bucksport notes one of which has an unlisted vignette, a girls belt made out from a dozen or so Maria Theresa Thalers, A $10 Plain Back Byram (CT) National Bank Note.


……TONIGHT'S MEETING…


  • Election of Officers will take place tonight. The program tonight will be given by president Peter Jones and will be about "Foreign Coins in Use in the American Colonies".
