The May meeting was very interesting with a presentation from Dave Stark and Paul Heinen on the Cleaning and Preservation of coins. Should coins be cleaned? And if so what is the best method?? We hope that everyone had fun and learned something new.


At the April meeting the membership decided to have a Silver Eagle coin drawing every month going forward. We also agreed to have a 1/10 Gold Coin drawing every 6 months with the next one being at our June 24th meeting.


Our June meeting will be packed as we will have our Annual Elections and the 1/10 Ounce Gold Coin Drawing. A program has yet to be determined. We had discussed an Auction and a Pizza Party but to date we have not received any consignments for the auction.


If you have something that you would like to consign please contact one of the members of the board or myself at


Also, if you have a program idea or would like to give a program yourself, please contact Doug Price or email me at
