Sad News – Dan Brintnall Passed Away January 7, 2024

It is with a heavy heart that we share the sad news of the passing of one of our regular, active club members, Dan Brintnall. We last saw him at our Annual Banquet on October 22, 2023. Dan cared very much about our club’s youth. During the holidays he always brought them goodie bags of special coins for their collections. Dan also liked to challenge them by running contests, where they would win a numismatic prize. For the younger kids, they were asked to draw a picture of their favorite coin. For the older youth, they were asked to research and write an essay on the Morgan Dollar. Check our club Facebook page for the repost of theis2017 contest.
Rest in peace, Dan. We will miss you!

2nd ANNUAL GARY ACQUISTIPACE MEMORIAL FUNDRAISING AUCTION

The December meeting will be focused around the holidays. We will be sharing desserts with a dessert potluck and celebrating the season of giving by participating in the auction of high-quality, donated items such as gifts, collectibles, events/sports, and social/food gift cards and items. Current list of items can be found https://mikewagner3.wixsite.com/2023auction. All members are encouraged to participate and bring guests.

DONATIONS NEEDED FOR ANNUAL AUCTION


The Second Annual Gary L Acquistipace Memorial Fundraising Auction for the Cupertino Coin Club will be held at our December meeting.  Last year’s auction was successful and helped with fundraising to cover the costs of running the club meetings, including things like club dinner nights, prizes, snacks, etc.  The success of the club is dependent on all of its members being active participants.  This event will help keep the club’s finances healthy for the coming year.
Everyone is encouraged to donate an item to the club for the auction.  I’d like to issue a personal challenge to each of you to think of something to contribute to the auction.  This is a chance for you to give back to the hobby and help the club continue to grow.
To submit items, send email to Mike Wagner at mikejwagner@outlook.com with pictures, description, and estimated value.  View the current list of auction items at https://mikewagner3.wixsite.com/2023auction.
