GCTC December 2013 Newsletter.pdf
The November meeting was called to order by
President Gary McNew, November Birthday dollars went
to Leslie Batts, Tom Lieberman and Paul Nison. 26
members were in attendance. In addition to our members,
Bob Dobski’s son and granddaughter and three other
guests also were present.
President Gary NcNew introduced our guest and
program for the evening, Laraine Reilly DiMaria, Laura
and Joe Kononchik of Reilly’s Treasured Gold store of
Pompano, Florida. As most of you know Kevin Reilly
was very supportive and a lifetime member of our club;
and Laraine and Joe are still lifetime members. Joe was
asked to speak to our membership of the newest metal
detecting equipment on the market. And as usual Joe was
up to date on the latest! It seems that all of the
manufacturers are continuously coming up with new
stuff! The pinpointers for the water are good for 25
feet! The newest White’s, Garrett’s and Minelab detectors
are enough to entice all who attended to break the bank.

The GCTC mailed a certificate to Luke Kelley for
returning a ring to its rightful owner. Luke, a 4 year old,
was at his preschool's playground in Oklahoma. He
decided to dig around in the mulch to look for treasure.
(He wished he had a metal detector from his Nana, Linda
Bennett). He found a ring and immediately ran over to his
teacher to give her his find. It seems the ring was lost by
a fellow classmate two days ago. Even though it was not
a valuable ring, her Dad had given the ring to her. She
called Luke her hero and she followed Luke around for the
rest of the day. Luke was made Rascal of the Day by the
school - a honor bestowed daily on one child from
preschool to 5th grade.
GEM AND MINERAL SHOW
The GCTC was invited to have a table to promote our
club at the Gem and Mineral Show on November 23-24 at
the South Florida Fairgrounds.
