Scout Numismatic Workshops being Organized

James Reinders has volunteered to help PNNA, and local clubs, outreach more to scouting programs with numismatic youth programs. James is maintaining a web site ( ) with information about upcoming scout workshops and the actual requirements for the scouts to complete. James organized the scout clinics for the Portland 2009 ANA National Money Show, and is looking for more opportunities as well. Id like to have workshops at more of the major shows in the Pacific NW including the ANA, PNNA and the Salem Thanksgiving show. Im interested in putting workshops together anywhere we can get scouts together, James said. He has experience with scouting program, James is an active adult leader in Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts, and was previously the Scoutmaster of a large Troop in Oregon. James has done workshops at the PNNA/Willamette fall show in Portland (see photo above).
