PROGRAM: (NOVEMBER NEWSLETTER)

I didn’t have time to follow up with Phil this month (See Editor notes for reason) to de- termine our program but I am sure that Phil has it handled and it will be an interesting topic. We will be taking care of elections and nominations in any case, so I am sure we will keep busy! 

Last month, we had a very successful “White Elephant” sale with a lot of items crossing the block, resulting in a $112.00 treasury enrichment! Thank you, to all that brought items in and everyone that bid on items! Also Thank you, to Ken Busby and Phil DeAu- gustino for handling the Auctioneer and Runner duties respectfully.


PROGRAM: (OCTOBER NEWSLETTER)

This month’s program will be a White Elephant Sale. We generally have a nice assort- ment of items offered and we hope that everyone will

have the chance participate.  

This is your chance to clear out the things cluttering your house or garage and help the club raise a few dol- lars. Items wanted are basically anything that someone else would want. (No junk, please!) The Auctioneer du- ties will be handled by our own Ken Busby. Bring your donations and your cash and the club will reap your generosity! I will be bringing a few items of my own and I hope others will do the same.

Last month was our Annual Ice Cream Social. Once a year, Dot Williams organizes and provides ice cream for the club and this year was no exception. Make sure you say “Thank You!” to Dot and let her know it’s appreciated! Also “Thank You!” to everyone that brought extra goodies to enjoy with the ice cream. We also had a very impressive selection of “Show and Tell’ which made for a very enjoyable afternoon.

PROGRAM: (SEPTEMBER NEWSLETTER)

Last month our own Phil DeAugustino gave a very informative lecture on Astronomy! With all the excitement of the full solar eclipse, it was interesting to see the equipment and references used for this hobby. If I recall correctly, I believe that Phil had the solar filters and camera equipment to take photos. Any chance of seeing some of them this meeting?

This months program is our Annual Ice Cream Social. Once a year, when the weather is hot, we have our Ice Cream Social and just enjoy getting out of the heat and having some ice cream! Dot Williams e-mailed me to volunteer as she has usually organized this in the past and this year is no exception. Ice cream and toppings will be provided and we would appreciate it if anyone wishes to donate cookies, brownies, or any other type of snack. We will not have a formal education program so “Show and Tell” items are actively encouraged. I will have a couple of things from the Golden State Coin Show and I hope others will too. Please say “ThankYou!” to Dot Williams for her thoughtful efforts! 

PROGRAM: (AUGUST NEWSLETTER)

Last month was our Annual Anniversary Luncheon. This year, in an effort to cut waste and expenses, we voted to do a pot-luck get together. I thought this went really well and will be soliciting input from the general membership at the next meeting on the subject. If everyone is agreeable, we’ll make the potluck a permanent arrangement.

This month, Phil DeAugustino will be giving a lecture on Astronomy! Considering that a full solar eclipse will soon occur, this should be some really interesting material! I hope to see you all there!


PROGRAM: (JULY NEWSLETTER)

This month is our Annual Anniversary Luncheon. This year, in an effort to cut waste and expenses, we voted to do a pot-luck get together. The club will be providing drinks and will also have paper plates, bowls, and silverware. If anyone needs anything in the way of serving utensils or anything out of the ordinary, please let me know and I’ll be happy to work anything out. All contributions will be gratefully appreciated and if anyone needs any suggestions as to something to bring, feel free to call me at 951-551-9480 and we can review the sign-up list. I hope to see everyone there!


PROGRAM: (CURRENT JUNE NEWSLETTER)

Due to the Club Picnic we didn’t have a “Show and Tell” segment last meeting. Since I presume that some of us have accumulated a few items since April I thought it would be a good idea to have a combined and extended Program/Show &Tell. Also since we will also be having a Board meeting following our regular meeting a shortened program is probably a good idea. So if you have anything to brag about or show off or just want to display and talk about, this month is for you. I will have a few things of my own and encourage everyone to bring something in! And also remember to get your free raffle ticket for displaying a “Show and  Tell” item!      


PROGRAM: (CURRENT MAY NEWSLETTER)

Our Super Auction last month was well attended and also very active in the bidding. We had over 110 lots of items and approximately 65% of the listed items sold.  

I would like to extend my personal “Thanks” to Ken Busby, our awesome Auctioneer, Jerry Bodenhorn and Mike Baylie , our busy lot runners, and Mary Ann Bodenhorn, for handling the accounting chores!! If you bought or sold anything at the Auction let them know that their efforts didn’t go unnoticed. Thanks!!!

This month is our Annual Club Picnic. Rafael has been hard at work doing the organiz- ing and he gave a briefing at the last club meeting and is all ready to go. Burgers, Dogs, and fixin’s are all provided by the club as are drinks. Pot Luck dishes are greatly appreciated but not required. We will be set up at our usual back pavilion near the horseshoe pits at Gibbell Park (2500 W. Florida Ave.). It’s a fairly small park so we shouldn’t be too hard to find and we will also have the club banner set up. We will be doing our usual raffle and 50/50 plus we will be doing Bingo, (We will have NASC Gold Tickets as Bingo prizes). We will not be doing any Show and Tell items but feel free to bring out any- thing you want to brag about. I will also be taking a group photo of the club and will submit it to the ANA along with a couple of photos from the display at the Library. I hope everyone can attend and I look for- ward to seeing everyone.


PROGRAM: (APRIL NEWSLETTER)

Remember that April is our Annual Super Auction. I am currently working on everyone’s lot listings and should have them done and ready to go with this newsletter. I will do 1 last check for submissions Monday, 10 Apr. and then I’ll post the newsletter and the lot listings at the same time. It looks like we have a wide selection of items to bid on this year and we already have over 100 items for sale. If anyone still wishes to sell items but hasn’t sent me their list please bring them to the meting and we can still lot and sell them then. I hope you bring your wallets and be sure to look over the items before the sale to ensure what your bidding on is the item you want. One last thing, Mary Ann asked that if possible, to bring small bills so as to cut down on the amount of change we will need. Thanks for your help!

PROGRAM: (MARCH NEWSLETTER)

Unknown We are going to try again to do what was originally scheduled as  January’s program. The topic is “Collecting Morgan Dollars’. Phil is an ardent collector of Morgan’s and I also have a reasonable collection myself that I will bring. I also know of a number of our members collect Morgans so we should have plenty of display material. Should be an interesting topic and discussion. 


PROGRAM: (FEBRUARY NEWSLETTER)

This months program will be conducted by Jim Philips on the subject of "Collecting Colonial Currency". I'll be talking about the different ways to collect Colonial currency along with a (Short!) PowerPoint presentation on the various colony issues. I’ll also have some display pieces so you can see what they look like! As you might notice, there are a couple of Colonial related items in this months newsletter that I will also talk about. I will try to be informative and maybe I can inspire others to collect a bit of Colonial history!


PROGRAM: (JANUARY NEWSLETTER)

Last month, of course, there was no actual program since we had our Annual Christ- mas Luncheon. I thought the luncheon went extremely well and was very happy with the facilities, the food, and the service! I left a very favorable Yelp! review and I hope everyone else was happy with the luncheon also. I will take an informal opinion survey at the January meeting for any improvement ideas.

Unknown

This months program topic is “Collecting Morgan Dollars’. Phil was nice enough to donate ”The Guidebook of Morgan Dollars” as a giveaway at the Christmas party so we are going to use that as the theme for this months meeting. I know of a number of our members that collect Morgans, including myself, so we should have plenty of display material. Should be an interesting topic and discussion.

I would also suggest that we have a slightly expanded “Show and Tell”. I have a number of items to display from the holidays and I am sure that others have the same. Lets see those gifts!


PROGRAM: (DECEMBER NEWSLETTER)

This month, of course, there will be no program since we will be having our Annual Christmas Luncheon. I have already given all the details for sign-ups and location in the “Announcements” section.

Last months program was a very informative presentation by Phil DeAugustino about collecting 1914 Federal Reserve Notes. He has an extensive collection of these notes and is an avid collector of them. There were color handouts of the note types which was very nice! Thank You, Phil!


PROGRAM: (CURRENT NOVEMBER NEWSLETTER)

This month’s program will be a presentation by Phil DeAugustino about collecting 1914 Federal Reserve Notes. He has an extensive collection of these notes and there are over 200 different denomination/signature combination in this series. Should be interesting, especially if you have an interest in large size notes!

Last month was our White Elephant/Bake Sale. We raised around $85 which is about $10 more than last year. It may not seem like a lot but those small amounts pay for most of our activities plus subsidize our annual Christmas Luncheon. Thanks to everyone that purchased items and our club Officers that volunteered to mange the sale!           


PROGRAM: (CURRENT OCTOBER NEWSLETTER)

This month’s program will be a combination White Elephant/Bake Sale. We usually only have the White Elephant sale but in an effort to stimulate sales we decided to do a combined sale. We generally have a nice assortment of items offered and we hope that by adding a Bake Sale option that we provide an opportunity to have everyone participate. 
This is your chance to clear out the things cluttering your house or garage and help the club raise a few dollars. Items wanted are basically anything that someone else would want. (No junk, please!) Or, if the kitchen is your area of expertise, donations of baked goods for sale will be greatly appreciated! If bringing a baked donation we would appreciate limiting the size of baked donations to prevent anything going to waste. Quality not quantity please! The Auctioneer duties will be handled by our own Ken Busby. Bring your donations and your cash and the club will reap your generosity!

Last month was our Annual Ice  Cream Social. Once a year, Dot Williams organizes and provides ice cream for the club and this year was no exception. Make sure you say “Thank You!” to Dot and let her know it’s appreciated! Also “Thank You!” to everyone that brought extra goodies to enjoy with the dec cream. We also had a very impressive selection of “Show and Tell’ which made for a very enjoyable afternoon.


PROGRAM: (CURRENT SEPTEMBER NEWSLETTER)

Last month we had a nice lecture on Chess and chess notation presented by our own Phil DeAugustino. He displayed a hanging chess board and demonstrated how chess notation allows people to follow the chess moves of a match without a board!. Pretty interesting lecture and very informative. I remember the matches between Bobby Fischer and Boris Spasky as being big news when I was young. Thanks, Phil!

This months program is our Annual Ice  Cream Social. Once a year, when the weather is hot, we have our Ice cream Social and just enjoy getting out of the heat and having some ice cream! Dot Williams has usually done this in the past and this year is no exception. Ice cream and toppings will be provided and we would appreciate it if anyone wishes to donate cookies, brownies, or any other type of snack. We will not have a formal education program so “Show and Tell” items are actively encouraged! I will have a couple of things and I hope others will too. 


PROGRAM: (CURRENT AUGUST NEWSLETTER)

Last month was our Annual Anniversary Luncheon. We had an excellent selection of salads and deserts and I am quite certain nobody went away hungry! It was nice to see everyone and since there was no specific program I had time to do the “socialize” thing and have some fun! Ellen Busby did an excellent job of organizing aided by Mary Ann Bodenhorn setting up and serving. Thank You, to both of you!

For those that don’t know it our own Phil DeAugustino is quite the chess master! He attends a national chess championship every year and is very active in the chess world. He will be doing a presentation this month called “Chess Anyone?” I am looking forward to this presentation and I am sure that others will be as well. I am definitely not a chess master myself but I do find the game interesting and challenging so this should be an interesting diversion. 

I will also have just returned from the ANA Worlds Fair of Money, along with Phil and Mary Ann and Jerry so we should certainly have a few things for our “Show and Tell” as well!
