Junior Session on currency notes presented by Larry Hamler.
Catherine summarized the minutes of the last meeting (March) and gave a brief financial report.
Larry got a tracking note in change - $1.00 with www.wheresgeorge.com written on it. The idea is to track where this note has been, by entering the serial number on this website.
SMS Renaissance Fair
The Club had 4 tables at the Fair. Manning the tables, and providing exhibits, were: Roy Crowell; Catherine Keys & her 4 boys; John Duran; Kelly OBrien & family. John brought along a box of grab bags for sale, and free coins to distribute to children. He had some of the new nickels to distribute, which generated a lot of interest, as it was the first time for most people to see them. There was a good attendance, in a high-traffic area, and a lot of interest in the display items.
Larry: has posters printed up. Members, please take some to distribute. There will also be the Door Prize drawing at the Show, as usual. Coin World has provided 2 free half-year subscriptions for a drawing also, along with a box of free issues to hand out.
Volunteers needed to work the Club Table during the Show:
First Shift (): Charly
Second Shift (): John T., and/or others (Doug may be able to help out, also).
Third Shift ( end): Catherine
All the money for the tables has now been received by Treasurer. All tables have been sold.
Charly: Suggests putting a monthly itinerary on the website, to list what to do each month throughout the year for the various Club activities.
displayed clipping from Leader Telegram about Money laundering currency going

Proposed a motion that the club buy Pizza and Pop for the May meeting.
Larry will organize getting the pizza and pop. If anyone wants to bring desserts to share, please do.
Larry volunteered to do the Educational Section. Topic: State Quarters, with a Quiz. Prize for the winner.
Show Survey Cards / Door Prize forms
John T: We need to get everyone to fill out a form, before entry to room, and before handing out the gift coin. Probably dont even need address details on the form, just NAME, so can be called if they win a door prize. Can redesign the forms for next show. We should have name labels available also
Larry: There is no longer any storage cabinet in the building for the Coin Club. If anyone finds one at a Thrift Sale for about $20 - $30, buy it for the Club and get reimbursed.
