  • 315th…. MEETING NOTICE... September 25, 2017





                    ........OVER THE SUMMER…....

  • Thanks to you, the members, we have done something not many clubs have done in the

    past. At the April meeting, we voted to support youngsters in various ways by putting

    our money where our mouth is. You should have received the two attachments regarding this over the summer but if not, they are attached below along with others. Applicants for the scholarship are urged to return the application as soon as possible. Our job as members is to encourage the youngsters to get involved and get to a convention to experience the competition and fellowship with other collectors. Even if the youngster has not previously had experience with collecting but is one who wants to learn about new experiences this might be an opportunity to do so.


  • Nominations for elected office will take place tonight and again at the October meeting as

    is the norm, every other year. Please let us know if you are available to serve the MNS in

    any capacity. The election will be at the October meeting.

    Also, with the fall season comes the request for yearly dues. These are not due until

    October but Franz is willing to open his books tonight to get a jump on the season. The

    dues amount is $10 per person/family.

    The program tonight will be given by John Ferreri and will be titled: A Victorian

    Numismatic Tour. Shown will be coins, paper money, tokens, ephemera and post cards

    issued or used in the Willimantic area during the 1800s and early 1900s.

    Youngster applicants are now being sought for the scholarships to the Y.N. program in

    Manchester, NH on Saturday November 4 th . Treat a youngster to a good time where

    he/she can attend the program and still have plenty of time to visit the show. Please see

    the attachments for further explanation.

    Vote: Should we offer one year free membership to the accepted scholarship applicants and scouts to encourage them to attend some meetings and to receive the seven monthly newsletters?

    .....ARE YOU A NENA MEMBER?.....

You will see ads from some of your favorite dealers and articles about coins and paper money from various member club's members. (We are a member club.) It also sponsors exhibit competition at the convention. You can read all about this if you become a member and receive your copy of Nena News.
