Ocala Coin Club Annual Awards
We are very pleased to announce that the President's Award for 2018 went to JOHN DARR, club member who has faithfully served the club as our auctioneer for many meetings in the past years. He is one of our con dealers, but his value as a member and auctioneer has been recognized for his willing service and knowledge at our monthly auctions.
In memory of our former President we also annually present the C.L. Wyatt Award. The C.L. Wyatt for 2018 went to John Miller, the Secretary of the Ocala Coin Club. John helped us win awards at 2018 (second place) and 2019 (first place) at the Winter F.U.N. shows in the Club Exhibits division. John not only keeps our minutes for both club and board meetings, he also volunteered to serve as Librarian for our club book library. From John's numismatic experience, he also contributed the bulk of our "Website Library" that is a page here on our website.
To each of these volunteers we express our appreciation for their efforts and are very proud to honor them with a plaque to commemorate this honor.
