The June meeting of the Fostoria Coin Club was called to order at 7:30pm by President Gary Moran with 20 members present.  President Moran led the membership with the Pledge of Allegiance.  This was our first meeting since the COVID 19 virus restricted us from meeting for three months.  Vincent Gaietto then read the minutes of the March meeting and they stood approved.  Vincent then read the Treasurer’s report for the months of March, April and May and they were also approved by the membership. 

New Business  

1.  Robert Gaietto was voted in as our newest member. 

2.  Gary Moran passed around a 3 legged Buffalo Nickel he had acquired for inspection by the members. 

3.  A motion was made by Vincent Gaietto and seconded by Harry Colvin to have a budget not to exceed $800.00 for advertising expenses for the upcoming October coin show.  The motion                              passed.

Coin Show Business

2.  Other than two volunteers for the registration table, all other positions remain filled.  These two vacancies were also filled.

4.  Coin Show flyers showing the new show date were made available to those in attendance 

5.  A few “distancing” regulations will be put in place for the October show.  We will need to adhere to all regulations put forth by the State of Ohio and Stacy’s Place.
