The year is really rolling as we are already now into April! Last month, we celebrated our 57th Anniversary at the Texas Back Forty BBQ in Pleasant Hill. I was very pleased as 50 members attended this event. There was great food, socializing and a prize drawing too! We also recognized some club members for their efforts which makes DNS 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 *HERE*.
We have started 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!
We are presently 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!
Until next time,
