The year is off to a fast start and we are now into March! We will not meet at the usual place for our March monthly meeting as we will be celebrating out 57th Anniversary at Texas Back Forty BBQ in Pleasant Hill. I’m very pleased as over 40 members have signed up to attend this event. Great food, socializing and prize drawing will take place as well as recognizing some club members for their efforts which make this a such a well-run coin club!
Our next club event will be our annual BBQ at the Old Borges Ranch in Walnut Creek on July 8th. This event is more than just a BBQ as the scenery, animals, museum and out buildings, etc. provide lots to see. You can find out more information about this event on our DNS website.
We are starting a new “Perfect Attendance Award” program for 2017. Club members will sign in each time they attend a meeting. At the end of the year, the names of all members who made it to 11 out of 12 meetings will be placed in a drawing to win a prize. In addition to our speaker programs, show and tell, drawings, etc. we now have another great incentive to attend the monthly meetings!
If you haven’t already paid your dues for 2017, they are now due. The cost is still $5 for juniors, $10.00 for adults with e-mail notification and $15 for USPS notification. I might add that we are at club member number 999. This means that the next new member to join our club will be the 1000th member spanning the 57 years that we have been a coin club. I can’t wait to announce this milestone in the near future to our membership!
I want to take this time to thank Maria Stillwagon for taking over publishing the Diablo Die Break. She is adding her personal touch to this newsletter and it looks great!
