Thank You Everyone:

On behalf of the Willamette Coin Club I would like to thank everyone who made the 2004 American Numismatic Association National Money Show in Portland, Oregon a most excellent and successful experience.

First and foremost, I want to thank the general public for their support in attending in large numbers. Second, thank you to the many dealers and organizations from all over the world who invigorated the bourse floor with their presence and their wares. Third, kudos to the local and numismatic media for their outstanding support of the show in print, radio and television stories and in advertising. Last and by no means least, I express my gratitude to the American Numismatic Association staff, national volunteers, and board members who worked tirelessly and unselfishly to give everyone involved a truly wonderful experience.

Additionally, as National Money Show General Chairman I am in awe of the work and time that the members of the Willamette Coin Club put into the show. Our committee chairpersons and every volunteer member worked unselfishly from the initial organization to set up and tear down and would not quit until the work was done.

I am very grateful that the American Numismatic Association allowed Portland to host its second ANA national show since 1998 and I am honored by the faith they put in the Willamette Coin Club as the host club responsible for putting the show together. Our club will never forget the experience and the memories, and we encourage other clubs to take on the challenge and reap the rewards of hosting an ANA national show. Nothing can match the experience involved in sponsoring an ANA show to build and cement relationships on both the local and national level.

See you all in Pittsburgh this summer for the ANA World's Fair of Money and in Kansas City next spring for the ANA National Money Show.
