The Legacy Knights Numismatic Society wishes everyone a Merry Christmas! We thought we'd post a "digital Christmas card" online to wish you joy and peace during this holiday season.
2018 has been a great year! Our club is a school-based club so our years run from September through May, so I guess we should say 2018-19 has been a great year so far, and we anticipate finishing the year well!
Last May we ended the school year with 18 members, up from 13 the year before. Already by Christmas this year, we have 23 members! A lot of sixth graders will be moving on in the fall, but momentum is building in the lower grades.
This year we have also seen growth in the guest speakers and special events list. We have already heard from renown military numismatics author and ANA educator, Mr. Fred Schwan, who traveled to see us; and we have completed our first Society coin project with a medieval moneyer. We have some project work to do towards earning some medals, so we're going to dedicate a couple of meetings to getting caught up on that over the winter. And since lots of coins have been found through metal detecting, we are hoping to do some of that in the spring!
As we celebrate the season that remembers God's greatest Gift to the world, we also remember the many individuals and organizations who have been very kind, enthusiastic, supportive, and generous to us ever since we first began. Thank you to all who are behind us cheering us onward, and a very Merry Christmas to everyone!
