Welcome Back DNS Members & Visitors

September 11, 2021

I can’t believe that it has been 20 years since the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center in N.Y.C. and the Pentagon in D.C. Hearing from the survivors of 911 brought tears to my eyes. I remember when I visited the World Trade Center back in 1987. I had lunch in the “Windows on the World” restaurant and the view was fantastic. After that, I looked up from the street and I couldn’t see the top of the building; it was so tall! It’s very sad to think that people jumped from there to their deaths in order to escape the flames.  President Bush gave a speech today at Shanksville, Pennsylvania saying that the country was united that day in the midst of utter destruction. Today, 20 years later, we are a divided nation. All of us will remember that day and never forget the brave men and women who helped out the best they could all across our great nation.

 Last month’s presentation was from Bill Hickman on the ANA’s Numismatic Degree. Thank you so much Bill on this great topic!  This Thursday, September 16, 2021, will be our 758th meeting. The topic will be Coin / Currency Display Night. It’s time for you to show off your best coin exhibits. Any numismatic topic is fair game. We will have First, Second, and Third Place awards to give out.

 I’m very pleased to announce that the Executive Director of the American Numismatic Association, Kimberly Kiick, has accepted our invitation to join us for our Christmas Party which will be held on Sunday, December 5th, at Zio Fraedo’s restaurant in Pleasant Hill starting at 6:00 pm. We will be accepting reservations for our Christmas Party starting at our September meeting. We will also be taking them at our October and November meetings. Entrée choices will be either prime rib or salmon. Prices will be $30.00 per person. Please sign up as soon as you can!

 We will have drawing tickets to purchase for our upcoming October coin show. Please support your club’s coin show by buying a book of tickets. We will also be having our usual 50/50, Show & Tell, and coin drawing with lots of coins to choose from.  I look forward to seeing all of you soon.  Please come and enjoy each other!

Until then, see you,

Kyle Anderson
