This last year has been great for the Penticton & District Stamp Club and great for the community at large.
We have had some fun meetings and we have had some great participation in gathering stamps and buying and selling the same for the good of both our members and the charities we support. Thank you all. Since the beginning of this year we collected through our auctions $2,301.55 of which $850 came from the sale of stamp material left to the club from the estate of Margaret McKibbin. The total includes two new charities we have added lately, the CNIB and the SPCA.
In total our club has made donations of $18,695.99. The PRH has received to date $11,452.19; Cancer Society – $3,993.70; Moog – $2,584.20 and CNIB – $665.90. The SPCA as it is a brand new charity, has not received a donation yet but we have gathered already $72.40 since September and in the new year we love to add to that amount before cutting a cheque for them. Thank you all for your generosity and friendships.
Should you wish to make a donation of stamps and or stamp material, please call me at 250-492-3875 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. You also may drop off your donation at 2600 Cornwall Dr. See you on Jan. 3, 2016, our first regular meeting of the year.
