……Newsworthy Announcement

  • ..The New England Numismatic Association (Nena) the regional organization that supports a convention and YN activities twice a year in New Hampshire would like to persuade some of our members to author a short article or two over the next year or two for inclusion in its quarterly newsletter sent to hundreds of members throughout New England and beyond. The pamphlet sized newsletter has been carrying 4-6 short articles from various club's members on various subjects. Nena is offering a free one year membership to anyone sending an article. Some of our members have done so and their articles have been or will be published. It is fun to write and gain the satisfaction of seeing your thoughts published for fellow collectors to read. For additional information or help with an article please ask John Ferreri via the email address shown in the header or at this meeting. Share your knowledge with the rest of us! Become a member of Nena and read the interesting articles submitted by your fellow members.


    ..Coin Show Report….

    74 tables were sold to dealers and one was provided, free of charge to the organizations headed up by John Frost. Parking was a little harder than in the past due to the University not letting "outsiders" use the lots behind the venue building due to renovations on some buildings there. We won't know the exact figures (profit/loss) until the WMPD charges are in but it looks like we will end up on the profit side by about $2000 which is right in line with previous years. Show profits help fund our other activities including YNs.

    Thanks to all who have helped with the annual show and supported other club activities during the year. We are grateful to have you all as members!
