Our March meeting centered around our upcoming Coin Show.  For the night’s topic, Pam  presented her WWII collection and other interesting items. It was a very interesting and informative presentation.

Coin Show report:  Our coin show was a success!  We had attendance of 410 people which was greater than last year.  Exhibits at the show provided by Randy R., Bob B., Tom S., Lyal L., Dale L., Jack D., Garrett S., John W..  The 2016 winner “Best in Show” went to Tom S. for his “Notes of  Waukesha” . Thanks to all the volunteers that helped setup and work the show, especially Pam for opening the doors at 5:45am and closing them after 4pm. We put on a great coin show and definitely showed what a fine club we have.
