At a recent meeting, the executive committee of the Jamestown Coin Club voted to make a donation to the Mental Health Association in Chautauqua County (MHA).

As club president Chuck Brininger read from the donation request form, “The MHA is a peer support recovery center that promotes acceptance and recovery principles.  In addition to one-on-one meetings with recovery coaches, the Mental Health Association also offers more than two dozen peer support groups. At these weekly meetings men and women come in and talk with others across a wide range of concerns. The MHA is currently working with the Manufacturers Association to increase the pool of prospective employees, improve retention rates, and reduce turnover.”

With the exception of the December holiday party, the Jamestown Coin Club meets regularly on the fourth Tuesday of the month at the Erie 2 BOCES Center on Route 394 in Ashville. Doors open at 6 p.m. and meetings begin at 7 p.m.

These monthly get-togethers include door prizes and raffles and are highlighted by an auction of coins submitted by members. Annual membership is $10. Guests are welcome to participate at no charge. March and August meetings are junior guest nights.

The group sponsors coin shows in March and September at the American Legion Herman Kent Post 777. The March show is held in conjunction with the Corry (Pennsylvania) Coin Club.
