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.

I had chosen Advanced Military Numismatics before I even wrote the scholarship application because I had research to conduct and writing to do on a publication that will hopefully be coming out by next April.
