MEETING OF NOV 15, 2016. VOL. 55, NO. 4
ATTENDANCE: 26 members & 1 guest (Alexander S.)
OPENING DISCUSSION: The meeting was brought to order at 7:45PM by Mike J, who welcomed our newest member, Mr. Alexander S. of Pierrefonds, who is a web master and was referred to us by Tom B. There is a possibility Alex can help us with a website or Facebook page. We also welcomed back Mr. Augustin P. of Pointe Claire who joined the club last year but was unable to attend meetings. We hope to see more of him this year. Since our “Bourse Night” was well underway and everyone was enthusiastic to get going, Mike wished everyone a good holiday/xmas and reminded us there is no meeting in December.
BREAK: coffee, tea, juice and cookies provided by David L.
MEETING CONTENT: “Bourse Night”
Fred T. and I were looking at a photo of LCC members taken in 1987 and Fred suggested that we take a photo of our club members each September, perhaps in front of Stewart Hall, and record everyone’s name. We will discuss this at the next executive meeting but it does sound like a great idea. The photo will be stored in the club archives in the library…and hopefully future generations will remember us!
Quite a few members brought coins, books and bills to sell and there were plenty of buyers. I was thrilled to be able to buy a 1984 Cdn Specimen set with the Toronto 150th .500 silver dollar, 2 gem-UNC Canada $10 bills (1989 and 2001) with matching serial numbers, and 7 UNC 3-pence coins dated 1960-1966. David L. found 2 new horse coins, one dated 1791. Jean T. found about 30 Cdn coins on her wish list. The evening was a great success, a definite do-over!
Jason C, our Club Librarian, brought down a box of surplus books and pamphlets to sell or give away. Several items were sold with proceeds to the club. He also lent out two books from the library this month and will soon he will be ready to lend books to any member in good standing. In the next few weeks a new library catalog will be distributed via email to all members and a new lending form and tracking system will be created.
RAFFLE: A 1960 RCM PL set worth $65 was won by Yeudiel; ticket sales were $116 and the club profit was $81. Thanks to Zach J. for selling so many tickets, apparently he broke the old record!
NEXT MEETING DATE: JANUARY 17, 2017 at 7:00 p.m.
REMINDER: no meeting in December; have a good / safe holiday!
