Due to the recent rise in Covid-19 cases in the Springfield area, the Ozarks' Coin Club Board of Directors has made the decision to cancel the February meeting. Stay healthy and safe and we anticipate to see you all back in person for the March meeting. For more information about the March meeting please check back to this page or look at our Facebook page for future updates.
We have made it to the end of another year, and the Holiday Season is upon us. Make plans to attend the 2021 holiday meal with the Ozark's Coin Club on December 7, 2021 starting at 6pm. The main courses will be purchased from Harter House, and a sign-up sheet went around last month for sides and desserts. We hope all members can make it to this annual event. Brian Sims has created a video of the club's activities throughout this past year, and it will be shown during this event as well. A big thank you goes out to the members that arrive early to help set up the meeting area for this annual event.
Hello Ozark Coin Club members! We want to remind you all that we have some big events coming in September and October. Our annual Ozark Coin Club Picnic is on Saturday, September 11, 2021 at Ritter Spring Park. The park is located on the north side of Springfield at 3683 W. Farm Road 92, Springfield Missouri 65803. Once you are in the park you will pass by the playground area and continue through the gate to the large picnic pavilion. We are sure to have lots of fun activities for all in attendance.
The next big event is the annual Ozarks Coin Show at the Ozark Empire Fair Grounds. We will have lots of vendors, door prizes, and activities for the kids. Masks will not be required during this indoor event, but if you feel more comfortable with one, feel free to wear it. Vendors will be setting up all day Friday, and members that are able to help can contact Jim or Judy to let them know your availability. Youth members, this is also a great time to participate helping to staff the youth booth, and help vendors when needed.
Are you a member of the Ozarks Coin Club? Do you want to look like you belong? Well, now is your chance! Ozark Coin Club Shirts are now available for purchase at the coin club meetings. Youth members who have not already received a shirt are able to pick one up free of charge. Adult members can purchase their shirts for the low, low price of $5.
Over the last year our world and nation have been tested by the Covid virus. Over the course of the last year the Ozarks Coin Club Board members have weighed decisions to meet or cancel the in-person meetings carefully, taking a multitude of factors into account and using sound judgement to try and keep members as safe as possible from contracting the virus through meetings. With current numbers of patients in the local hospitals down, and the number of fully vaccinated people in the area on the rise, the Ozarks Coin Club Board is happy to announce the first in-person meeting of 2021. Even though we are starting to see improvements in the virus weakening in the area it is still important to stay vigilant. So, all attending members will be required to properly wear a mask or other facial covering, have their temperature checked at the door and maintain social distancing while in attendance.
This meeting will be extra special for the Youth Members, who have long awaited the youth auction that normally takes place during the January meeting. If you have youth members please try and make plans to attend the upcoming April meeting on April 6th at 6pm at the Discovery Center. Youth members should have received information about the items on auction and the point amounts they accumulated over the 2020 year from Mr. Guy at the December meeting. Youth members with questions can also contact Mr. Guy at his email address listed on the newsletters.
As much as we want things to get back to "normal", the fact remains that we are still in the middle of a pandemic, and we have a responsibility to our members and community to work together to limit the spread of the Covid virus. With that in mind the Ozarks Coin Club Board Members decided during the January 12, 2021 virtual meeting to cancel the February Coin Club meeting out of caution for safety and health of our members. We will keep the website up-to-date and the newsletters up-to-date about the March meeting. Stay healthy, stay safe and don't forget to wear a mask.
Hello to all of the Ozarks Coin Club members. We hope you have a Safe and Happy Holiday Season. Out of an abundance of caution the Ozarks Coin Club Board of Directors have voted to postpone our regularly scheduled January meeting, to prevent any post travel spread of the Covid-19 virus among our members. We are scheduled to have our next coin club meeting on February 2 at the Discovery Center.
Since the youth coin auction was scheduled in January it will take place during the February meeting. Youth members are strongly encouraged to attend the coin auction. Additionally, during the December meeting Mr. Guy announced that he would no longer be awarding youth members a birthday coin(s) during their birthday month.
As we all get ready to celebrate the Thanksgiving Holiday, think about all of the wonderful things you have to be thankful for, and count your blessings. The 2020 calendar year has been quite eventful as it played host to a global pandemic, and shifted the plans and gathering of so many. The coin club will be hosting its December meeting, but instead of the traditional meal and holiday spirit, it will be a business as usual meeting with an auction. Many blessings to you and your families over this holiday season, stay healthy and safe.
