Message from the President

TBCC it is for those who enjoy fun and knowledge!

In our last gathering, with attendance of over 30, including 1 new member, all presents were pleased, with lots of activity and FUNThe auction was well conducted by Mr. Omeara. The raffle included a silver Peace dollar and several Proof U.S. Mint sets.

The monthly attendance price was won by Mr. Taddia. Once again
, thanks to the efforts of the club directors, we are overcoming all obstacles and achieving all goals set! WONDERFUL!

After hearing the report of our Treasurer, we ask members to share any numismatic experiences.  Mr. Fetzko (past TBCC president) congratulate the good work of the club and talk about his trip to the ANA museum in Colorado Springs, an worthwhile visit. Mr. Crespo also speak about his travel to the New Orleans Mint, and encouraged members to make a visit to its magnificent coin collection, among others local attractions.

The educational lecture was cancelled due to personal reasons. It was re-scheduled for the month of July. It will be conducted by Jefferson nickel specialist, Mr. Richard Bousquet, titled Jefferson Nickels Varieties & Errors.

Members who know of youth who are interested in numismatic ,TBCC would like to send to Summer FUN day seminars in Orlando, contact us!
The last product from our Medal Program, celebrating 60th Years of our Club, is in the final stage of design as well, choosing the Mint that will carry on the job. I could be available this summer, possibly before. Keep checking with us via TWITTER!

The educational presentation for March (a two part lecture) will be conducted by Mr. Ray Herz, from the Ocala coin club, titled A Survey of Art Medals. Come see for yourself! You are going to find out interesting things about medals!

REMEMBER, our club will
conduct our next Coin Show on Saturday, APRIL 18th, 2015, from 9 AM to 3 PM at the Zendah Grotto Masonry Social Club. It's the suitable local to have it. It has parking facilities and food dispensing area.

The Officers and Directors wanted to wish each of you a ..................

Warmest thanks for all of your hard work and outstanding contributions,

Best regards,
