New Business at our March meeting included:
Tina proposed that the club establish a Dick Plopper Merit Badge scholarship since Dick was such a strong advocate of the Boy Scouts and had gotten the club involved the Merit Badge program for the Scouts in Waukesha. A committee of three formed to work on the proposal.
Discussion was raised as to how we should compensate the Salvation Army for sanitizing the meeting room. John proposed that we donate $20 each month. The motion was seconded and approved.

Exhibits included: Three colorized silver 50 pence coins from the British Royal Mint featuring dinosaurs originally discovered in Great Britain, a binder of OPA tokens which were used during WWII, a 1955 “Bugs Bunny” error half dollar so-named because Ben Franklin appears to have buck teeth.
