May 6th Membership Meeting


Club meeting called to order at 7:15 pm by President Glenn Dean.

Announcement by Glen that at our next membership meeting (on June 3rd), we will have a "swap meet" in which club members are asked to bring coins and numismatic items for the purpose of buying, selling, and trading with each other. In lieu of a live auction, a silent auction (with minimum bids... no limit) will be conducted. If this "swap meet" goes well, we will look at conducting more "swap meets" every 4 months.

Glen then announced that Board Member Tim Burke (and his wife Ann) will be relocating to California in a few weeks. As Tim and Ann were in attendance, club members thanked Tim and Ann for their contributions to the club. We will miss them.

Volunteers were then requested to participate in four (4) committees that were established to handle key function of the club:

May 21st Anchorage Coin Club
Board Meeting

ACC Board meeting called to order at 6:30 PM by President Glen Dean. Meeting held at the Turnagain BBQ Restaurant (located next to the University Center).

Distribution and review of correspondence by Board. Stewart Smith briefed the club that he and Tim Burke moved the club tables, cases, and chairs from Tim's house to Stewart's hangar for the time being.

Note: As of the club's Board meeting, Tim and Ann Burke were driving to California. The Board and Club wants to thank Tim and Ann for their support over these past years and wish them well as they settle down in California.

Discussion then ensued on a permanent location to store these club items. Stewart looked into a 5 ft x 10 ft storage unit.... which will cost the club $50/month with one year's payment in advance. Since cost became an issue, President Glen Dean will work with Carl on seeing if a club member can have these items stored at their home. Meantime, OK to keep items at Stewart's hangar for the time being.

For our club's June 3rd membership meeting:

As there was no further business to discuss, the Board meeting concluded at 8:00 PM
