Happy Groundhog Day 2021!
February 2, 202
This is what happened in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania today during a
snowstorm when the temperature was a balmy 19 degrees Fahrenheit:
One of Phil’s, (the world’s most famous groundhog), top-hatted handlers
read from a scroll, “It’s a beautiful morning this I can see, with all my fans
viewing virtually. My faithful followers being safe and secure, our
tradition of Groundhog Day must endure.
We have all passed through the darkness of night but now see hope in
morning’s bright light. But now when I turn to see, there’s a perfect
shadow cast of me. Six more weeks of winter there will be.”
During our last Zoom meeting in January, we had a presentation on the
100th anniversary of the 1921 transition from the Morgan silver dollar to
the Peace dollar. In honor of this event, the US Mint is producing legal
tender Morgan& Peace silver dollars this year, 2021. Details are still
being worked out at the mint. We also gave away a silver Eagle to a
randomly selected participant.
Topic for February 18th : This month’s presentation will be given by
Neil Robertson. It’s entitled “From the Mine to the Mint” and will take us
through the process of turning precious metals into collectible coins from
the 1800’s to the 1930’s. We will be holding this monthly meeting via the
Zoom Meeting. The Show & Tell Topic is anything that concerns
the Boy Scouts since the BSA was founded on February 8, 1910.
We will also be giving away another silver Eagle at this meeting so please
make it a point to attend. I’m looking forward to seeing all of you on our
next Zoom February 18 th meeting. I’m also looking forward to seeing all of
you in person as soon as COVID-19 is under control!
Until then, see you,
Here’s a fun video made by Kyle Anderson celebrating our 700th Meeting back in
November, 2016. We’re looking forward to many more Decades of Fun in our Bright Future!
