We express our appreciation to Chip Davis for arrangements to rent The Coleman Center from the American Legion for our 4th Tuesday meetings for 2020.
We also express thanks and appreciation to the VFW Post who offered to rent us their post for our meetings. The club expresses their appreciation to the Board for searching for affordable meeting places for both monthly meetings and for our annual coin show. We DID NOT receive an affirmative answer from the Ocala National Guard Amory for our February show that is currently undergoing a roof repair. We have had to CANCEL our February 6-8, 2020 Ocala Coin Club Show.
We express our Prayers and good thoughts to Karl Stroessner as he has been diagnosed with cancer. Ellen, his wife, let us know he spent many days in the hospital in December and has not received an optimistic diagnosis.
