VOL.XLIX October 2017  #10

Our September meeting focused on the latest developments with our 2018 coin show.  It came to light that we needed to move our coin show to March 25, 2018 to avoid overlap with the Madison show and to secure availability of the New Berlin Ale House.  Our 2018 Coin show is set for Sunday March 25th.  The Boy Scout Seminar needed to be re-scheduled since the Boy Scouts informed us their venue was not available. New date for Boy Scouts is tentatively March 3rd.  We also discussed our December 6th Christmas dinner and asked Cathy to coordinate it.  We will ask members to contribute $20 per person while the club covers the majority of the costs.  Nominations for next year’s officers are open.  There are positions for President, Treasurer and Secretary.  Vice President will be filled by Glenn J.  If you are interested in filling one of these positions, please see Randy or Mark.   


  • Please bring Nonperishable Food Items to October meeting for donation to the Salvation Army.
  • Our next regular meeting of the Waukesha Coin Club will be held at 7:00 P.M. on Wednesday, October 4th , at the Waukesha Salvation Army meeting room located at 445 Madison Street.  The Salvation Army is located one block west of the corner of Highway 18 and Madison Street.  Enter through the back door and take the elevator to the second floor.
  • Mark your calendars for the WCC coin show March 25, 2018
  • Guests Welcome: If anyone wants to bring new collectors young or old to the meetings, remember that guests are always welcome!
