The Coin Collectors Group met at the RSL Rooms on the 22nd February. Six members attended and enjoyed a very pleasant morning's discussion as Alex displayed some proof sets of the Sydney Olympics, Melbourne Commonwealth Games, Centenary of Federation, Millennium series and Sir Charles Kingsford Smith. Thanks go to the RSL and RSL Secretary Heather Hartland for enabling us to use the RSL rooms for our session.
With the Senior Citizens renovations completed we will return to the U3A Meeting Room at the the U3A allotted time of 10.am to 12.midday on the 3rd Monday of the month. Our next meeting will be on Monday15 March.
Unfortunately the changed time slot has meant some members are unable to attend, however, our numbers have remained the same at 13 with new enrolments. Welcome Gary Edwards, Sallie Hann, David Lowlng and Judy Stewart - we trust you will enjoy the Coin Collectors group.
