Penticton donors make special gifts to stamp club

This last week was quite special for the stamp club as they received special donations.

This last week was quite special for the stamp club as we received one large box filled with stamp albums and stock books.

A gentleman and his wife came to the door and had brought a helper along to lift the large box out of their truck into my basement.

He also brought with him a copy of his dad’s will in which it stated that all of his stamp collection was to be given to the Penticton & District Stamp Club for them to sell and have the proceeds given to charity.

What a gift to the stamp club and what a gift for our charitable organizations.

Yesterday I received a call from a gentleman, diagnosed with cancer, who informed us his stamp collection is coming to the club for auctioning off and the proceeds go towards cancer and the Moog House.

A reminder to those who wish to come to our next stamp club meeting our meeting will be Dec. 8. We were happy to change our meeting date specifically since I personally sing in two of the choirs that will be performing at the church and things would have been too hectic having to run between two groups all at the same time.

As this will be the last meeting of the club for 2013 we wish everybody a merry Christmas and a happy new year and thanks specifically all our donors who make it so much fun to be a stamp collector and be able to help our charities at the same time.

See you at our club meeting or maybe next year when our first meeting will be on Sunday, Jan. 5, 2014.

Gus Boersma

President, Penticton & District Stamp Club
