The Exchange : Thank you South Shore Coin Club for ANA Table at your 50th Annual Show

Thank you South Shore Coin Club for ANA Table at your 50th Annual Show

The South Shore Coin Club (www.ssccmke.org) held their 50th Annual Show on April 3-5, 2014, at the Clarion Hotel and Conference Center, located on Howell Ave. near the airport. The hotel has free parking. We want to thank President Steven Jendusa and Show Chairman Joe Bartoszewicz, along with the officers and members of the SSCC for giving the American Numismatic Association (www.money.org) a free table at the show. We were able to sign up 14 members for the Association and give out coin collecting information to visitors. Russ and Ken Konig from the Greater Milwaukee Coin & Jewelry Exchange located both in Brookfield and Waukesha, Wis., donated $25 for the shipment of the coin show kit. 
     
About 30 people waited patiently for the show to open on Thursday.  he SSCC volunteer members were kept busy registering dealers and early birds, passing out wooden money, handing out tickets for the hourly door prizes and selling raffle tickets. The show was sold out and had 44 dealers occupying 78 tables. The attendance over three days was 900, which included 200 free seniors. Thirty children from MPS Alcott Elementary School, along with chaperones, had a great time for their field trip to the show. Several very nice competitive and non-competitive exhibits were on display. A Milwaukee Numismatic Society Boy Scout Coin Collecting Merit Badge Clinic was held on Saturday in conjunction with the show. It was chaired by Dr. Leon Saryan who was assisted by club members. The 54 scouts who signed up passed all requirements and received their Coin Collecting Merit Badge. After the clinic most of the scouts visited the bourse area. The show was busy in the morning and early afternoon hours for the three-day show.          
     
Thanks again to the SSCC for the free ANA table. We look forward to attending next year's 51st  annual show which will be moving to the Crowne Plaza Milwaukee Airport, 6401 South 13th Street, Milwaukee, Wis., on March 26-28, 2015.
