                     ~ MEETING FOR WEDNESDAY  July 18th~

                               Our July meeting will feature our member  Dr. Lloyd Chan presenting:

"Ancient Coins on Stamps"

Our own Lloyd Chan kindly agreed to be our presenter.  The generous Dr. Lloyd Chan has offered to present to RECC on July 18th a program that depicts the merging of two of his collective interests.
This will be a PowerPoint screened presentation along with examples to be passed around.
“Famous coins have been depicted on stamps from several countries and although they typically are ones of historic value there are others that proclaim their uniqueness in other ways.  Dr. Lloyd Chan will address these issues and provide examples of his unique philatelic collection.”




 



 

                                                           Thank you Lloyd for volunteering the July program!


 "Show and Tells" of diverse and eclectic enjoyments should be encouraged and audience participation is highly welcomed.   Please come to our meeting and bring something to share.
