POT LUCK / PIZZA NIGHT
Speaker, Ray Johnson
Happy 4th of July!!!
We would like to welcome
everyone to our Annual Food Night
where we will be serving fresh
Pizza under direction of Larry
& Kathy Benson. So, dinner is on the club tonight, we will supply
the pizza and drinks and we are asking everyone to bring in a little
something to share with the rest of the attendees. We need some Pot Luck side dishes; a salad,
toppings, snacks, desserts or what ever you want to bring. It a community
affair, so bring your appetite for some yummy goodies!
We will also have our Life Member, Ray Johnson who will
be the evening speaker, speak on “Numismatic
Variations”. Ray has been busy putting together an array of examples
for you to see. He loves not only collecting, but the art that comes out
of some of the older coins and jewelry that has been made, by hand and
some are machined. There is a lot of stories
about why some of these coins became art.
We will also be having a SJCC monthly board meeting at the club house starting from 6:15 PM – 7:30 PM and the SJCC general meeting will commence promptly at 7:30 PM. Hope all our members
show up and take an active role in the discussion. We do ask, that during our SJCC Board Meeting that the loud
conversations and noise be kept down. It is very distracting and
interferes with the meeting and getting it done in a timely fashion.
Please be respectful and understanding of the situation.
will have an Auction, Show & Tell, Refreshments and a Drawing towards the end of the
meeting. See list of drawing
prizes below. We also ask that
everyone help with the clean up of the room and putting chairs away.
