Greetings Members & Friends!

We are about 5 weeks away from our annual 2019 Contra Costa Coin Show, the largest source of operating income for the Diablo Numismatic Society. In these last few weeks and days before the show we all need to contribute our time and sign up for various duties as volunteers for the show as much as we can.

Revenue sources from bourse table fees, drawing ticket sales, and advertising sales are all very much on target or slightly ahead of last year. Besides our members either checking out more drawing tickets for sale or purchasing them we need volunteers to sign up for specific coin show duties. Larry, Kyle, as well as myself will be speaking on specific coin show duties which remain open and will ask for volunteers at our next regular meeting on September 19th. This is our last meeting before the show. These duties range from helping with the DNS membership table (Youth & Adult), help setting up the electrical cabling, and monitoring the Elks Lodge parking lot for best usage as well as other duties. We will have a sign-up sheet at our meeting and I hope you will volunteer for two or more 2 hour assignments. Please volunteer your time and talents and let’s all ensure that this 2019 Contra Costa Coin Show will be the best ever!

The topic for our September meeting is “Exhibit Night” so bring a themed numismatic topic either boxed or framed. The participation for this topic has increased each year and the entrants have been getting better and better. Let’s see what is brought to this meeting and as usual awards will be given for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place.

Our next Board meeting is Sunday, September 15th at noon at the Safeway in Alamo. (< click for map)
