JR Newsletter: 16 August 2020 (511)

 A reminder about our upcoming meeting of the John Reich Collectors Society:

The Board of Directors of the John Reich Collectors Society held its annual meeting via a Zoom video teleconference recently.  The officers of the board decided that the JRCS will host an online meeting for the general membership (and other interested parties) on Wednesday, September 9, 2020 at 7 PM Eastern time zone.  


If you would like to participate in this general meeting of the JRCS, please send an email to jrcsweb2(at) and you should receive a link to the meeting (within 48 hours of the meeting time).


Among topics for this meeting, we may expect JRCS announcements on such topics as the JRCS Hall of Fame and the Jules Reiver Literary Award; a featured speaker and topic; and other discussions of member interest.


The JRCS will have as a goal holding quarterly video teleconference meetings, with the tentative schedule to be the third Wednesday of the months of November, February, May, and July at 7 PM Eastern time zone.
