Club on the move

Penticton Stamp Club holds last meeting at Penticton Library/Museum Auditorium on Dec. 2

Now that we are into the new stamp club season here are a few things people would like to know. We have one more meeting at the Penticton Library/Museum Auditorium before moving to new quarters.

Our last meeting at this location will be Dec. 2, after which we will be moving to the Penticton United Church on Main Street (Blue Church). Meetings at the Blue Church for next year are: Jan. 6, Feb. 3, March 3, April 7, May 5 and June 2. No meetings for July and August.

During the summer months we did receive a number of donations to the club of stamps and stamp material which have been sorted and have been or are auctioned off during our regular meetings. Proceeds are donated to the Moog House and the Cancer Society. The club is very grateful to all the donors and the charities are equally grateful for the cash donations.

Those who have orphaned collections and don’t know what to do with them please contact us at gboersma@telus.net or contact Gus at home at 250-492-3875 for advice or pickup. For those interested in valley-wide stamp activities, please note that there will be a Stamp Show and Bourse in Summerland on Nov. 24, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the IOOF Hall, 9536 Main St. in Summerland — all are welcome. Meetings of the Penticton Stamp Club are from 2-4 p.m. and non members are always welcome.
