Good News DNS!
In person meetings start April 15th!
April 9, 2021
This month marks one year since the Covid-19 pandemic forced us to stop in person meetings for the Diablo Numismatic Society. Since June of 2020, we have had our monthly meetings conducted via ZOOM software. A very big thank you goes out to our VP, Neil Robertson, for getting that to happen. All of us have been longing to get back together again and now is the time.
The Concord museum has informed me that we can now meet again but under Covid-19 restrictions. Everyone will have to wear face masks, social distancing of 6 feet will be observed, hand sanitizers will be available, and bring your own refreshments. The club will not provide drinks or goodies due to Covid-19 this month. Next meeting in May we will probably go back to Dave’s award winning goodies and drinks if the Covid-19 numbers keep reducing and the number of people getting vaccinated increases.
During our last Zoom meeting in March, we had a great presentation from our own Bob Luna on the United States’ classic commemorative coin program from 1892-1954. We also gave away another silver Eagle to a randomly selected participant.
Topic for April 15th: This month’s presentation will be given by Dave Davis. He will be talking about coin photography. He gave this talk last year via ZOOM but has since added new material to it. It’s a great presentation worthy to be seen in person. The Show & Tell Topic is what favorite coins have you photographed or would you like to have taken a picture of. Share a coin that was instructional and led to a deeper knowledge on a subject you collect.
We will be having our usual, pre-pandemic, coin drawing with lots of coins to choose from. I’m very much looking forward to seeing all of you in person again. Please come and enjoy each other next Thursday, April 15th, at the Concord Museum!
Until then, see you,
