President's Message - May 2023

Welcome Back  

Diablo Numismatic Society!


          May is the month to celebrate the beginning of summer, mothers, and those who gave the ultimate sacrifice to protect this great country of ours. I had a great time celebrating Mother’s Day with my family down on the Boardwalk in Santa Cruz. We also celebrated my son’s 29th birthday down there on the beach. On past Memorial Day observances, the boy scouts and I placed American flags on the graves in Golden Gate National Cemetery in San Bruno on the peninsula.  I salute all of you who served in the armed services and your families to keep our country safe!


     May is also the month when we start taking reservations for our upcoming July BBQ. I have to change the date from Saturday, July 15th , to July 22nd which is also on a Saturday. We will be meeting at Old Borges Ranch in Walnut Creek from 3:00 pm to 6:00 pm. The price is $20.00 per person with kids under 18 years of age free of charge.  We will be having a very tasty menu brought to you by your club’s board members. This will include BBQ chicken and all the fixings. We will also have our coin drawing after our dinner. There will be no regular meeting for July. Please plan on attending!!!


     Last month we enjoyed the presentation on the Coins & Currency from Old Hawaii. This was done during National Coin Week which is put on by the American Numismatic Association, ANA. We also had our quarterly coin auction care of Bill Hickman. Thank you so much Bill!


     This month will be the club’s 777th meeting since 1960. We will be having a presentation on Liberty Seated Dollars, Morgan Dollars, & their Counterfeits by our good friend, Scott Griffin. You don’t want to miss his talk. It will be super informative. 


     You might have noticed that our website has a new look to it. That’s because we switched to a new web host provider in order to save some money. A big Thank You to Dan DiCarlo for putting the finishing touches on our website.


      If you have any friends who would be interested in history and coin collecting, please invite them and bring them to this next meeting. We will be having our usual Show & Tell and coin drawing with lots of coins to choose from.  We will also have our On-Time and Membership coin drawings as well.  See you soon!


Until then, God bless,
