Glen then briefed members about our club's Summer picnic on Saturday, August 2nd starting at noon and running through the afternoon:
Location: Picnic to be held at the pavilion at Abbott Community Park located on Elmore Road. This is the same location where the club has held its picnics for the last 4 years.
The club will supply the meats (hotdogs, hamburgers) and condiments. Club will also supply the soda pop, plates, utensils, napkins, table cloths, chips and dips.
Members were asked to bring potluck items by first letter of last name:
A-H, bring a side dish,
I-O, bring a salad,
P-Z, bring a dessert.
The highlight of the Summer picnic will be our club's Donation Auction in which club members are asked to submit donation coins and numismatic items. Proceeds from the Donation Auction will go towards our club programs.
The club's Summer picnic (now and the future) to be dedicated in the memory of past club member Roy Brown...... one of the founders of the Anchorage Coin Club and owner of Roy's Coins.
Everyone was reminded that that the club's picnic event (on Aug 2nd) will also serve as our club's official membership meeting for the month of August. Accordingly, do not show up on Tuesday, August 5th for a coin club meeting (at the Central Lutheran Church)... as no one will be there.
The club will be raffling off a $2 & 1/2 U.S. Indian Gold coin graded NGC AU58 at the Summer picnic. Tickets will be $5/ticket, 5 tickets for $20, or 11 tickets for $40.
A reminder that there will be a Kenai Fair Coin Show to be held in conjunction with the Kenai State Fair (August 15th through August 17th), Event will be held at the State Fair Grounds in Ninilchik (located at 16200 Sterling Highway. You can contact Tom Dalrynple (home # 907- 262-6733) if you would like to have a table at that coin show. If you are in the area, go see the fair and the coin show.
In last month's newsletter, member Stan Mead announced plans for the club to conduct class presentations over two days at the Girl Scout "Biennial Encampment 2015" to be held at the Alaska State Fair Grounds in Palmer (in mid June, 2015). Presentations will be for approximately 200 Girl Scouts to get their merit badges in coin collecting. Stan and Ruth Mead will be heading up the presentations..... and are in need of items/funding for the event. A similar event was held in June 2013 with very good success. Discussion by membership. Consensus by membership to use one of our meeting dates (between now and June 2015) be used as a donation auction in which the funds raised will be allocated for this program.
New member, Andres Macias, is also a member of the Alaska Miners Association and offered use of his Miners Association Show for our club tables. Good interest shown by members in attendance. To be discussed further by Board when they hold their Board meeting on July 16th.
Monthly raffle prize, an 1898-O U.S. Morgan Dollar in MS63+ condition won by Maribel Nakata. Coin was subsequently given to club as a donation coin for the club's monthly auction. Presentation given by Allen Nichols on the subject of "Building a Mint Set Collection." Following presentation, club's monthly auction held. Meeting concluded at about 8:20 PM.
Board meeting called to order at 6:30 PM by Secretary Larry Nakata. Club President Glen Dean and Club Vice President Stewart Smith were both of town that day and could not attend. Meeting held at the Turnagain BBQ Restaurant (located next to the University Center).
Correspondence reviewed and distributed. Primary focus of Board meeting was to make sure everything is in order for the August 2nd Anchorage Coin Club Summer Picnic event:
Briefing by Treasurer Stan Mead- Stan will pick up the club items for the picnic and plans to be at the Pavilion at Abbott Park by 11 am. Stan can use some help in setting up.
As of the Board meeting, 21 donation coins have been submitted by club members. Among the donations were 17 coins submitted by club founder Robert Hall, who now lives in Arkansas, an 1885-S U.S. Liberty Gold VF submitted by member Bill Fivaz (residing in the Atlanta, GA area), two (2) Wisconsin State Quarter varieties certified by ANACS (submitted by Larry Campbell), and a 1984 Olympic Prestige 6 Coin Set (Proof) submitted by Loren Lucason.

The $ 2 & 1/2 U.S. Indian Raffle Prize Winner will be selected at the August 2nd event. Final raffle tickets to be sold at this event.
Discussed, as a carryover item from the membership meeting, was the offer from member Andres Macias on the Anchorage Coin Club having tables at the Alaska Miners Association convention.
