Recap of the May 20th
Anchorage Coin Club Board Meeting

Board meeting called to order at 6:58 PM by Club President Allen Nichols. Meeting held at the Turnagain BBQ Restaurant located near the University Center.

Following review of correspondence, update briefing by Allen Nichols on matter of storage trailer:

On the matter of coin shows, already held were two weekend coin shows over the Fur Rondy Event held at the Sears Mall in February/March. Two more are planned for 2015:

For 2015, Stan and Ruth Mead plan to do the Girl Scout Jamboree in which coin seminars are conducted for merit badge certifications in the area of coin collecting (Numismatics).

Discussed was doing coin displays at events in the Anchorage and Matsu Valley. There is an event on June 21 at the Alaska State Fairgrounds in which our club has an opportunity to setup a display. Allen Nichols will work with some of the Board members on this matter. As a result of the appeal for "giveaway" coins at our club's April 7th membership meeting, we now have lots of coins to give away for these display events and coin shows. Thanks go to our club members for their coin donations.

With the club's Summer Picnic to be held at the Abbott Community Park on Saturday, July 25th, an announcement to be made in this month's newsletter that the key event will be the club's yearly Donation Coin Auction. Members are asked to submit coins (as donations) with the proceeds from this auction benefiting our club programs. Coins and numismatic lots can be brought in at our next club meeting on June 2nd or can be dropped off at Carl's business location at the University Center (prior to the July 25th Summer picnic date). Otherwise, members can bring in donation items at the Summer Picnic event.

For membership meeting on June 2nd

As there was no further business to discuss, Board meeting adjourned at 7:30 PM
