Happy New Year 2021!
To All D.N.S. Members and Visitors:
Welcome. This is my first President’s message since you graciously elected me to this office. I wish to thank all of you for the honor and privilege of leading and serving this great organization. Before I begin, I would like to mention the great men that I know who came before me and served as president: Michael Turrini, Mike Stanley, the late James Laird, Larry Casagrande, and Bob Luna. Gentlemen, thank you so much for all that you did! This coin club would not be here today if it wasn’t for your hard work and dedication. Also, a big round of applause for all of the Board Members; both newly elected and previous.
Wow! What a year 2020 was! The ongoing pandemic of Covid-19, empty store shelves, national toilet paper and coin shortages, devastating forest fires in the West, orange smoky skies, violent civil protests, cancelled coin shows, and election debacles just to name a few. However, online coin sales were up along with the stock market. We all hope that 2021 will be a better year!
For half of the year, we met virtually via Zoom. During our last meeting in December, we talked about using this new technology in the future, like at coin shows. We also discussed about how the younger generation is approaching the hobby online.
Topic for January 21st: We will again be meeting via Zoom and the presentation will be about the year, 1921; in particular, the 1921 Morgan and Peace silver dollars. Then we’ll touch on the 100th anniversary of those coins by the U.S. mint with the new 2021 commemorative silver dollars. The Show & Tell Topic will be what numismatic item(s) you bought in 2020.
Our next Board meeting will be held via Zoom on Sunday at noon, January 10, 2021. See you all at our next Zoom meeting on Thursday, January 21st at 7:00 pm.
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!
