WE’RE IN THE NEWS!

MintMark, published by the ANA, has published our article in the Q2 2022 edition, on the successful BSA Coin Collecting Merit Badge Workshop, lead by Emile and Suzy with six CCC members, which we put on in February. See pages 5-6.

MAY: BRING A FRIEND MONTH


Bring a friend, or two, to our next meeting on May 13, and you will be entered into our special Friend Drawing for a prize. Plus, you and your friend(s) will have fun at the meeting. This applies to both youth and adults! Thank you for introducing your friend to a potential new hobby and helping our club to grow!

A PLEA FOR YOUR SUPPORT

Thank you for being members of Cupertino Coin Club. We value your membership and participation in our club. The Board of Directors and Officers thank you for pledging to support us at the April induction in our efforts to keep this club thriving. COVID has had a negative impact on the club. We were not able to hold a show in 2021. The clock is running on lead time needed to put on a show in 2022. Costs are rising everywhere. The club continues to have expenses for things such as monthly meeting room rental, minimal meeting snacks, club website, insurance, and the medals produced in 2020-21 for a show which we have yet to hold, including two dies for both the obverse and reverse. We need your monetary support. Please show your support by bringing your dues current by submitting your $12.00/year (that’s $1.00/month) for adults and $6/year (that’s 50¢/month). We found it necessary to increase our annual dues which had remained $5/year for adults and $1/year for youth, for 21 years, but that is no longer viable. If you value your numismatic hobby, local club, and the friendships made here, and want to keep this club running, please become current on your dues. You can mail your check to the club PO Box or give it to the club Treasurer in person at the next meeting. If you prefer to pay electronically, please contact the club Vice President at cupertinocoinclub@gmail.com for the email address linked to a PayPal Account. Do not attempt to PayPal directly to the club email; it won’t work. Thank you, again!

MAY 2022 CLUB MEETINGS

Don’t be frightened! Our May general meeting will be Friday the 13th. Although this will be a hybrid meeting with a Zoom option, you will want to attend in-person in order to participate in the program. The 100 Grand Challenge is back! We will run a numismatic Q & A game, run by our Vice President and Program Chair, Suzy. Winners of each question will receive a 100 Grand! (Fun-Sized candy bars will be given to the winners. Gluten- & dairy-free participants will receive an alternate yummy treat. We didn’t forget about you!) The general meeting will also feature our usual auction, show & tell, attendance & birthday drawings. If you are not current on your dues, you can mail your $12 per year dues to the club PO Box or pay them to the Club Treasurer, Emile, at the May meeting. Our meeting will begin at 7:30 pm at St. Joseph of Cupertino Church.

We will have a virtual board meeting Wed, May 18, 7:30 pm. All members are welcome to attend. Please contact the Club President, Gran at cupertinocoinclub@gmail.com for the Zoom link if you are interested.

MEETING DATE CHANGE: General Meeting Moved to April 1

This is NO April Fool’s joke. Key Club Officers needed to run the April General Meeting are not available April 8. The church was not available to us on Good Friday, April 15, so we have decided to move the April meeting up one week. We hope you will join us at 7:30 pm on the FIRST Friday of April, April 1 at St. Joseph of Cupertino Church.

We will have a hybrid meeting again, with in-person and Zoom available. The meeting will feature an auction, show & tell, attendance & birthday drawings, plus the induction of Club Officers & Board of Directors for the 2022-2023 term and Keith S’s presentation on “Numismatic Thorns”.

Dues are due, so please plan to make your $12 dues payment at the meeting to the Club Treasurer or mail your dues check to the club PO Box.

We will have a virtual board meeting Wed, April 20, 7:30 pm. All members are welcome to attend. Please contact the Club President, Gran at cupertinocoinclub@gmail.com for the Zoom link if you are interested.

MARCH 2022 CLUB MEETINGS

The Friday, March 11 general meeting will be an in-person business meeting that will feature our usual auction, show & tell, attendance & birthday drawings, plus the annual election of Club Officers & Board of Directors for the 2022-2023 term and a slideshow, highlighting all the fun events this club has participated in over the last 12 months, March 2021 – February 2022. Members in good standing are eligible to vote for the 2022-2023 Board. If you are not current on your dues, you can mail your $12 per year dues to the club PO Box or pay them to the Club Treasurer, Emile, at the March meeting prior to the election. You won’t want to miss this exciting iMovie video that Board Director Alex is helping Program Chair Suzy put together. Our meeting will begin at 7:30 pm at St. Joseph of Cupertino Church.

We will have a virtual board meeting Wed, March 16, 7:30 pm. All members are welcome to attend. Please contact the Club President, Gran at cupertinocoinclub@gmail.com for the Zoom link if you are interested.
