In The News
To all the Young Numismatists, and all of you who are young at heart, let me introduce myself. I am the new YN coordinator for NCNA, Bob Pedolsky.
Over the past 15 years or so, I have been the YN coordinator of the Charlotte Coin Club. If any of you have been to one of the club shows and wondered what the balloons were about, that was part of the Treasure Hunt that we have done for all the kids who have attended.
At the YN table, we had many “Treasure Bags” and other items to give the YNs for completing the Treasure Hunt, in addition were items sale for adults which raised money to support the YN program of the Charlotte Coin Club.
Barry Ciociola, our good friend and 2018 President, succumbed to his battle with cancer on Wednesday October 17, 2018. Barry was diagnosed in early August and made the decision to fight it with aggressive treatments at the hospital in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.
Those that knew Barry, know what a fighter he really was in life, as he touched so many of our lives in the numismatic community. The family has also expressed many thanks to everyone for their show of support and love via cards, visits, and prayers over the last two months. Please keep Barry’s family in your prayers as they go through this time of personal loss and grief.
