New collectors often don't have access to the clubs that most of us do. And many people (including me) don't find local coin clubs until later. So what can you do while you wait?

We want to sincerely thank FUN Convention Coordinator Cindy Wibker, President Tony Swicer and the entire Florida United Numismatists (www.funtopics.com) Board for letting the American Numismatic Association (www.money.org) have a table at your July 11-13, 2014, 8th Summer Fun Convention in Orlando, Florida. The ANA table was very busy and the public traffic was superb. We signed up 23 members for the Association and many left with our monthly magazine, The Numismatist, and are contemplating joining. We also passed out flyers for the Chicago and Portland ANA conventions. Thanks to dealer Leo Frese, from Poiente, Laguna Niguel, California. for donating $100 to the Association for the coin show kit shipment.

The Ocean County Club is having its annual "hot dog" night July 17th. We begin at 6 p.m. - hot dogs for everyone plus soda, coffee and whatever any member brings out as a donation. Fortunately, we use a local firehouse in Point Pleasant Beach for our meetings and the facilities are great for what we do. We will still have a junior meeting at 6:45 and the regular meeting at 7:30. This is just another fun type activity for clubs to use to improve their moral, attendance and membership.

The 38th International Paper Money Show was held at the Cook Convention Center in Memphis, Tennessee, on June 12–15, 2014. We want to thank show owner Lyn Knight, along with Show Chairman Doug Davis, for providing the American Numismatic Association with a free table. We were able to sign up new members for the Association and one person was going to sign up for the Summer Seminar. We also handed out The Numismatist and ANA literature to interested people. Information was also given out regarding the World's Fair of MoneySM in Chicago, Illinois, Aug. 5-9, 2014, and the National Money ShowSM in Portland, Oregon, March 5–7, 2015. Thanks to John Musk from New York for his $30 donation to ANA for the shipment of the coin show kit.
