OCTOBER GENERAL MEETING CHANGE

We planned to have the October 2021 meeting be our first in-person meeting in 18 months, but regret that we had to make a last-minute change and hold this meeting online via Zoom. Key individuals were potentially exposed to Covid recently. To ensure our members’ health and safety, we felt it best to hold this meeting online and apologize for the late notice. Our Junior President, Aidan will be running the meeting and our Guest Speaker will be Emile, with an interactive presentation about Fascinating Facts about U.S. Coins – Part 2. Thank you for your understanding.
