A letter to the Northwest Coin Club...

Dear NWCC,

Whether it was the first Scout to get his Coin Collecting Merit Badge or ChaLee Yang  one of the last in the  group yesterday --I know they all were excited to learn so much from all of you, to tour the Expo and talk to adults who took the time to talk to them 

and to take that envelope filled with coins home to show to their family ..... you all made  a Huge impression on these youth.

Thank You so much --I was truly amazed seeing so many adults being there for these kids ..


And then Today Sunday ...

You Did it Again !!!   What a fun and another great learning experience for these kids ... and the parents  Loved it too !!! 

No matter what the kids came home with --they were thrilled --and They will be Back Next year for more--You have them hooked  for sure .


Just to share...... the three children from the  BC Hmong Family I brought 

 ChaLee Bid  4 times.. $50 each and came home with a book on Mohammad Ali -

 2 set of coins  and yes Ron that Empty folder of stamps  Included  20 east coast Quarters --He was thrilled


His sister  Kimee Bid $100 for the Shrek CD and coins   and loved it

Younger sister YongCha  waited too long to bid her $200.. so had nothing --but she knows to come early next week and Bid early too!!

All part of the fun day they had !!!  


 They all couldn't wait to tell their  parents and G-parents and their 5 sibling at home about this COOL afternoon !!!



It was a pleasure to be part of both these days.. also I was so impressed with the vendors  from all over the US --What  a friendly group!!


Thank You
