SNS Annual Banquet

There are no July-August SNS meetings scheduled, and there is an off-site banquet each February.

2018 annual club banquet and auction information (by Rick Schulz) —

The banquet has been held, and we'll post a short report when available.

I don't know if the local ground hogs saw their shadow or not but according to my calendar it is still winter, and will be until next month. However, I have been seeing some signs that spring is drawing near. Buds and new shoots are starting to show on long dormant plants. Canada geese are starting to form up into vee formations again, a sign they are getting ready to head back north. And, we are seeing longer days, a little more sunshine and a little higher temperatures. My cat actually wants to go outside again, a sure sign of spring.

Another sign that we are on the downhill side of winter is the upcoming Seattle Numismatic Society annual banquet. Our February meeting is devoted to this event which will be held this year at the Mandarin Buffet and Grill, 14850 NE 24th St, Redmond, WA 98052, just south of SR 520 off of 148th Ave. S. I say event because along with a fine choice of Asian delicacies and pleasant (hopefully) conversation and camaraderie with fellow club members, we will hold a white elephant sale of numismatic and non-numismatic items to raise funds for our treasury. This is our only fund raiser of the year and pays for our monthly prizes, refreshments, and newsletter expenses.

With that, we hope that you and yours will join us for a fun evening of food and bidding. Remember to bring a big appetite, lots of white elephants and a little extra cash so you can take home someone else's donations. Start time is 6:30 p.m., with the auction starting around 7:15 p.m. See you there. Note that auction items don’t necessarily need to be numismatic — anything goes!!
