Happy Christmas! meeting on Tuesday Dec 18th

RCM Murano Holiday Reindeer


Hello Everyone, 

I want to take this opportunity to wish you and your family a Merry
Christmas and a Happy New Year. 

The North Shore Numismatic Society
Christmas meeting is on Tuesday, December 18, 2018.

The meeting is held in the Multipurpose Room at the Bonsor
55+ Senior Centre across the parking lot from the Bonsor
Recreation Centre Main Building. Doors open at 6:30 pm and the meeting will
start at 7:00 pm. The meeting is open to members and non-members, so
everyone is welcome.

Instead of a program, this meeting
is an opportunity for you and your significant other to get together with
your fellow collectors for food and drinks. To make it a successful
evening, please bring some finger foods or snacks to share with the
others.  If you plan to bring something to share, please email me
info@northshorenumismaticsociety.org with your contribution.  The club will provide the
drinks, plates, napkins, utensils and whatever else is needed. Please
note that liquor is not permitted on the premises. 

The highlight of the meeting is our traditional Pandora’s Box
draw.  For those that are not familiar with this draw, please note
that only paid-up members are entitled to
participate.  If you are not a member but you wish to participate, you
may join the club that night for $15 and your membership would be extended
to the end of 2019. 

To participate in Pandora’s Box, please bring a wrapped numismatic gift
of at least $15 to the meeting.  It would be placed in Pandora’s Box
and you will receive a numbered ticket in exchange. Husband and wife
memberships only have to bring ONE gift and are
entitled to only ONE ticket. During the course of
the draw, you DO NOT want your ticket number to be
drawn.  If it is drawn, you are disqualified from winning the
Box.  The holder of the last surviving undrawn ticket wins the
contents of the Box. Having won the Box twice in the past, I can tell you
that it is a nice haul of numismatic items. This year, the club will again
contribute four (4) silver 1 oz. Maple Leafs
($100 value) into Pandora’s Box.   If you forget to bring a gift,
there will be a limited number of pre-wrapped gifts available for purchase
for $15.  

We will still have our usual
Auction and Door Prize draws, so please remember to bring your floor
submissions for the auction. Because of time constraints, submissions
are limited to 5 per person. I only have a limited amount of change, so
please bring small bills and coins to pay for your successful bids.
