Twenty-five (25) people observed Al White’s presentation on Civil War Confederate philatelic issues and other materials. He discussed printers, the varying issues, counterfeits, and facsimiles. Denny Donnell then showed his collection, followed by John Marquardt presenting the amazing amount of books and brochures on Confederate philately (and more). Scott Ward also showed the beautiful art for covers. A good time was had by all.

We had a great meeting! Two auctions were held with four full tables: Columbia Dollars (earned by members for participation) and Cash Fundraiser for the club. Bidding sometimes went over $100 for the Columbia Dollars auction! There were 20 bidders. As a bonus, John Marquardt, as he generously does every year, supplied brownies and ice cream for the ice cream social. Members also turned in old Columbian dollars to exchange for the new ones. If you have the old Columbia dollars, they can be exchanged for the new club money until the end of the year. Please see John Marquardt as soon as possible about exchanging. Lots of people attended and the meeting lasted a bit longer than usual, until about 9 p.m.
