ANA clubs hold shows, present certificates

The Oswego County Numismatic Association's show occurred on Sept. 22. This was our 49th show. We hope that next year is a wing ding of a show to honor our 50th.

In other news we presented a certificate too member Tom Eassa who provided us withan excellent talk earlier this year.

We are also preparing for our election of officers as well as a Christmas party. 

The Rochester Numismatic Association informed me via their drawing tickets that their show is coming up on  November 2-3 at the Eisenhart Museum gymnasium. 

A multiclub show was held on Oct. 13 in Waterloo at a location beyond my ability to attend. Also on Oct. 27 there will be a Cayuga County Coin Club show held in the Auburn area. The outcome will be posted in the next Mintmark.
