The Token and Medal Society will hold its annual board meeting, general membership meeting and banquet on Wednesday, Aug. 8, in conjunction with the American Numismatic Association World’s Fair of Money in Philadelphia.

The TAMS banquet is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. in Banquet Room 13 at the Philadelphia Marriott Downtown hotel, 1201 Market St. Doors to the banquet open at 6 p.m.

Cost will be $45, and will include the meal, dessert, nonalcoholic beverages (including coffee, tea, iced tea and soft drinks), tax and tip. Seating is limited to 50 people.
