New Members: Harvey Gamer, Pat Larkin and Bruce Tran
Membership Status: A total of 74 members are current for CY 2017 .
Dues need to be paid now to avoid immediate loss of privileges.

Education Program: Mike O’Brien’s talk “Winning A Gold Medal in
Swimming in 1984” was extremely interesting and different from most
of our talks. Learning about 6-8 hours of daily practice and the many
other obstacles to winning a gold medal was very enlightening. Mike
is truly a local hero, hailing from the Mesa Verde area of Costa Mesa.
Most impressive is Mike’s devotion to teaching children how to swim,
over 50,000 thus far!
Show and Tell: John M. updated his information on a slabbed,
counterfeit gold coin that was “certified “ by NGC. Since there is
considerable interest in this item, it will will be a future talk.

Donations: OC Rare Coin and Bullion (1927 Harbor Blvd. Costa
Mesa, CA 92627) continues to donate many valuable coins for our
club auctions. Please reciprocate by giving them your business.
