7:00 pm     Program:  “Money Talks.”  Norman Filtz, Retired Accountant, and Money Holder.
Money Talks by our own Norman Filtz concentrated on the words, symbols and other special markings on paper money.  We all brought a dollar bill ($1.00) and a magnifying glass to study and learn the symbology on our currency. Also viewed were gold and silver notes, and confederate bills.  It was an interesting evening. Thanks Norm!
