We need volunteers to give programs in 2019. Contact Kenny Smith if you have an interest.
We’re preparing for our annual donation auction and we need your support. This is our major fund-raising event and helps pay for the monthly rent, door prizes, refreshments, Christmas party bingo prizes, quiz night prizes, summer doggie roast and many other things. Last year, we raised over $4,000 which allowed us to discount everyone’s cost for Christmas dinner (free members, youth, $5 guests).
We welcome all donations. However, experience has taught us that items valued above $10 garner more spirited bidding.
Search through your coins and/or currency this week to find donations – maybe your duplicates or coins you really no longer care about. Bring them to the January meeting where we can begin to catalog the items. — Sam F.
HAPPY NEW YEAR! We are about to embark on another year of the Collector’s Forum and I hope you can join us. Since this first meeting of the year falls closer to Valentine’s day, the topic will be Love Tokens. If you want to know more and if you have some tokens you would like to share with the group, feel free to bring them.
WHEN: Tuesday, January 29th at 7:00 pm.
WHERE: North Richland Hills Library (in the Board Room)
ADDRESS: 9015 Grand Avenue, North Richland Hills, TX 76180 ( https://maps.google.com/maps?q=9015%20Grand%20Ave,%20North%20Richland%20Hills,%20TX%2076180 ).
TOPIC: Love Tokens
This meeting is held on the 4th Tuesday of every month. It is a casual meeting with no specific format, but I will usually have a topic for each meeting (suggestions are welcome) and we will let the conversation flow freely.
This meeting is open to anyone interested, and is not associated with any club, just fun and informative. Please feel free to forward this to other collectors that you think may have an interest. —Kevin Kell
