On April 19, 2022, the Madison County Coin Club held its regular monthly meeting in Huntsville, Alabama. The MCCC is a smaller club than I am used to in Pennsylvania. I am used to meetings with 75-100 present at Red Rose of Lancaster, PA. Harrisburg and the Daniel Boone CC of Reading are closer in size to the Madison County Club.
The club returned to live meetings a little under a year ago, but getting back to pre-COVID attendance has been a struggle (or so I am told - I wasn’t there pre-COVID). But tonight was a pleasant surprise. There were over two dozen members in attendance, plus five new guests. Our Treasurer was not able to attend, so taking membership dues was not going to happen.
We are doing well with new members. I need to make a batch of new name badges.
Our program consisted of announcements, show and tell, and a Power Point presentation from one of our youngest YN members on the U.S. Mint’s new issues for 2022.
The renewed strength of attendance will make the return of auctions a possibility.
