Long-time North York Coin Club (NYCC) member Bob Velensky was named a life member of the club at a meeting this May.
Velensky, who recently turned 90 years old, was presented with a framed certificate as well as a medal by NYCC President Bill O’Brien. The certificate features the image of a gold membership card showing Velensky as life member #33 of the NYCC. While he hasn’t served on the club’s executive, Velensky is now in his 25th year of continuous membership.
Other life members in attendance of the May 22 meeting were Jim Heifetz (life member #29); Paul Johnson (life member #17); Marvin Kay (life member #30); Norm Belsten (life member #19); and Roger Fox (life member seven), who’s now the longest surviving life member of the club. The first life member was Louise Graham.
