South Carolina Treasure and Artifact Association - June Minutes June 22, 2015
The SCTAA met on June 22, 2015 with 20 in attendance. Carter Mahaffee re-joined the club for a total of 38 members so far this year.
The program was a discussion of Kenny’s travels to Arizona and Isle of Palms, SC. Tombstone was impressive as an “authentic old west” town. Kenny and wife, Chris, found old porcelain pieces in a pile of dirt there. Near Phoenix, he found an arrowhead made of quartz. Randy Reece shared some information about the Myrtle beach trip. He is planning another trip at the end of summer.
We have some raffle tickets to sell for the FMDAC at the next meeting. We also need to purchase prize coins for the remainder of the year (July through November).
Upcoming: Randy Reece’s Myrtle Beach trip - coming near the end of summer
