The educational lecture was conducted by a fine couple of collectors, Mr. Jerry and Mrs. Judy Purchell, titled Pop Out Repousse Coins. They not only got a great presentation, they also offered to all attending the lecture, home-made snacks and refreshments, can't be better than that! The raffle was excellent and so was the auction, next month will be better.
