LETTERS: Fortunate to live in Canada

Stamp club wishes community a blessed Christmas celebrated with family while being thankful for country lived in

On behalf of the Penticton and District Stamp Club we wish all of the Penticton Western News readers a very blessed Christmas with the hope you may celebrate it with some of your family and friends.

We Canadians are so fortunate that we live in a country where people can celebrate their freedom of religion and politics. We should every day when we wake up celebrate that fact and shout it from the rooftops that we are happy to be Canadian.

As stamp collectors we deal with many different people and as a thank you to the community at large we collect and auction off stamps.

The proceeds we donate to our chosen charities. We welcome stamp related gifts and encourage people during this holiday season to see what is hiding in the basement or wherever and see that, instead of cleaning house and throwing it, this can be given to the stamp club for their auctions.

Any stamp related material is welcome and we ask people to call Gus at 250-492-3875 or email gboersma@telus.net or deliver at 2600 Cornwall Dr.

Our last meeting of the year will be on Sunday, Dec. 7 from 2 to 4 p.m. at the Penticton United Church on Main Street (blue church). All are welcome as we will celebrate (early) the Christmas season with auctions – live and silent – circuit books and Christmas goodies. See you at our meeting now or in the future.

Gus Boersma, president

Penticton & District Stamp Club
