Club meets in new year

The Penticton and District Stamp Club meets Jan. 8 from 2-4 p.m. at the Penticton Library/Museum Auditorium

First, on behalf of the Penticton and District Stamp Club I would like to wish you, your staff and all of your readers a merry Christmas and a happy new year. Our group of avid stamp collectors has been meeting once a month, every first Sunday of the month, from 2-4 p.m. at the Penticton Library/Museum Auditorium and will be doing this again during 2012. When we have a statuary holiday, the meeting is moved to the second Sunday of the month. Our next meeting will be Jan. 8.

We would like to say a special thank you to all those who have donated stamps and or stamp material to the club for our monthly auctions, of which the proceeds will go to cancer research and the Moog and Friends Hospice House.

We would also like to thank the South Okanagan Seniors Wellness Society for letting the club participate in their very worthwhile annual Seniors’ Symposium.

Our other thank you goes to the local paper who so willingly informs the general public of what, when and where the Penticton and District Stamp Club is doing in our community.

Our club welcomes new members at any time of the year, and for those who have kept their postage of the Christmas mail, we would love to take it off your hands. Should you be involved in cleaning up around the house and not know what to do with discarded or orphaned stamp collections, please give Gus a call at: 250-492-3875 or email him at and he will make arrangements for pick up and or evaluation of what you may have. Once again, thanks to the community at large and wishing you the best of the holiday season.

Gus Boersma, president


Penticton and District Stamp Club
