Greetings Members & Friends!

First off……you who are members of the American Numismatic Society should have received your voting ballots for the next Board of Governors of the ANA. Don Kagin is on the ballot running for the next President, so be sure to vote for him. The DNS Board nominated him and he is a big supporter of our club so lets all give him our vote.

Coming up this month is a program by John Ward on “The Washington Quarter”.

John is one of our Annual Contra Costa Coin Show Coin dealers as well as a retired teacher so his program will have a teaching and learning focus on this US coinage series. A PowerPoint visual will not be used, however a follow-along handout will be given that will greatly aid in this program.

Larry Casagrande has been working diligently over the last few months in signing up coin dealers for the Coin Show Bourse in October as well as implementing better budgeting and expense control. We are lined up to have one of our best shows in recent years. The club still needs your help and support in selling, buying, and distributing our Coin Show drawing tickets. With great thanks to Bill Hickman who passed out our drawing tickets at our May meeting we are off to a good start. Twelve members have either accepted for sale or bought tickets at last month’s meeting.

Also, our summer BBQ is coming up on July 13th, Saturday, at Borges Ranch so plan on being there or being square. Kyle will speak on this at the June meeting and reservations will be taken as well.

Don’t forget to pay your club dues. Memberships expired at the end of March, but you can still renew and not miss a “Die Break” newsletter or any other club activity!

Our next Board meeting is Sunday, June 9th at noon at the Safeway in Alamo. (< click for map)

Kind Regards,
