GSNA TECHNOLOGY GRANTS FOR MEMBER CLUBS
The Garden State Numismatic Association, ANA Life Club #17, founded in 1975, has established a Technology Grant Program for member clubs. The grants of up to $400, are awarded to reimburse member clubs which have purchased cameras and related electronic equipment for club use. These cameras are normally used to project enlargedĀ  images of coins, currency and medals onto large screens for easy viewing and discussion by members at club meetings. Since we are all getting older, and our eyes getting weaker, this has been much appreciated. To date, grants have been awarded to the Atlantic City Coin Club, Hackettstown Coin Club, Northern Valley Coin Club, Roxbury Coin Club and Watchung Hills Coin Club.
