August 3rd Anchorage Coin Club
Summer Picnic and Membership Meeting


The club's Summer picnic event was very well attended with the event starting at noon time at the Abbott Community Park on Elmore Road in Anchorage. The event ran through the afternoon.

Also attending was Bill Stratemeyer and his wife, Mitzi.... from the Baltimore Coin Club. Bill is also a member of the Anchorage Coin Club. Bill and his wife had timed their vacation plans to coincide with our club's August 3rd picnic. While there.... Bill handed out 40th Year Commemorative medallions from the Baltimore Coin Club to all that attended.

There was lots of food and good company at this event. Highlight of the event was the coin club's Donation Auction... in which members of the club donate coins and numismatic items with the proceeds benefiting our programs. Thanks go to all of our members who donated items that ranged from a set of early date Lincoln Cents to a U.S. Liberty Head $10 Gold piece. Our club raised over $1800 towards our programs.


August 23rd Anchorage Coin Club
Board Meeting

Meeting was called to order by Club President Carl at 6:30 pm on August 23rd. Meeting held at the Yamato Ya Japanese Restaurant which is located close to the University Center in Anchorage.

There was a review of all correspondence by the Board members in attendance.

The Board then discussed the Summer picnic event held on August 3rd and considered the event to be very successful.

The Board went on to discuss the final two upcoming coin shows for the calendar year. President Carl will check with the University Center for a coin show in October (concurrent with the distribution of Permanent Dividend checks). Carl will also look for a good date in December for a Christmas coin show. By our next September Board meeting... we should have dates identified.

A Message from the President

A very special thanks to everyone that donated and attended our annual summer picnic and auction. A good time was had by all and was a great success. And best of all, it did not rain!

A special thanks to Richard Jozefiak, Volunteer District Representative for the ANA, who sent us a packet and presentation of "Official State of Alaska Silver Proof Medallions - Animals of the Last Frontier on Medals." It is very well done and very informative view on Alaska state medallions. He hails from the Madison County Coin Club of Huntsville Alabama. These interesting materials will be available for browsing at the September 3 meeting.
