Today is day 4 of the A. N. A. World’s Fair of Money in Chicago. Today’s big event was the awards banquet that took place this evening wherein Fleet Society member Tom Uram (# 23) received the Chester Krause Distinguished Service Award. This award was recently created and Tom was the very first person to receive the award.
As an aside, the Society was very well represented at the convention over the past several days. Here is a list of the members that were in attendance:
Dan Sedwick (#2), Winter Park, Florida
Augi Garcia (#3), Winter Park, Florida
Richard Jewell (#21), Wexford, Pennsylvania
Tom Uram (#23), 84, Pennsylvania
Mike Dunigan (#50), Fort Worth, Texas

Ray O’Shinski (#104), Canonsburg, Pennsylvania
Ricardo Lopez (#117), Tampa, Florida
Bob Hurst (#150), Vero Beach, Florida

And, including myself, that made 13 members present here at the convention.
Overall, it was a very successful show. I enjoyed myself immensely. I hope you have enjoyed my daily reports.
