Club Meeting this Tuesday November

Hi everyone,

The next North Shore Numismatic Society Meeting is on Tuesday, November 21st.  The meetings are now held at the Bonsor 55+ Senior Centre (across the parking lot from the Main Building where we used to meet) in Burnaby in the Multipurpose Room upstairs.  Doors open at 6:30 pm and the meetings start at 7:00pm.  The meeting is open to both members and non-members, so everyone is welcome.

Program:  Michael Souza will present another popular “Guess The Country, Quiz #12”.  He will show you one side of a coin and give you a multiple choice of three countries.  All you have to do is select the country that you think issued the coin.  Simple right?  Paper and pencils will be provided. 

Please remember to bring your items for the floor submission auction.  Please note that because of time constraints, there is a limit of 5 auction lots per submitter.   To pay for your successful bids, please bring small bills and change.
