Happy Birthday America!

Annual BBQ coming July 17th!

July 10, 2021

Welcome back DNS members and guests! As we prepare for our overall 756th meeting, it’s good to pause and look back to where America was one year ago. It was the summer of Covid-19, lockdowns, civil unrest, and violent protests with over 1,000 historic statues being toppled over through out our great nation. It seems to be less violent now however there is the ongoing threat and reality of massive wildfires and drought in the west and torrential flooding in the east. America has seen worst in her 245 years as she weathers the storms of nature and of discontent. She is still the best country in the world as we celebrate her birthday.    

At last month’s meeting, I had the honor and privilege to present to you “America the Beautiful; The Quarter Dollar Series”. Thank you so much for letting me share this topic with you. I hope you enjoyed watching it as much as I enjoyed putting it together.

At this month’s meeting, we will celebrate our nation’s birthday at our annual July BBQ which will be held at the Concord Museum on Saturday, July 17th, from 3:00 pm to 6:00 pm. Carol from the museum said we could stay until 7:00 pm if we like. The price is $20 per person and includes BBQ chicken, tri tip, Dave’s award winning cookies, and all the fixings. We will also be having a presentation by Gene Berry on the history of the Carson City mint. Let’s hear it for Gene!!!

Breaking News: The US Mint will resume taking orders for the new 2021 Morgan and Peace silver Dollar coins starting on August 3rd and August 10th. Apparently, they had a lot of trouble taking the orders for the Carson City and New Orleans 2021 Morgan silver dollars back in May. Hopefully they cleared up all of their website problems.

We will be having our usual Show & Tell and coin drawing with lots of coins to choose from.  I’m very much looking forward to seeing all of you in person again. Please come and enjoy each other!

Until then, see you,

Kyle Anderson
