Stamp club meets

Penticton and District Stamp Club will be having its annual general meeting on Sunday

On Sunday, the Penticton and District Stamp Club will be having its annual general meeting, to be held at the Penticton Buffet, 2987 Skaha Lake Rd. starting with a buffet luncheon at 12:30 p.m.

Next year’s table officers will be elected and we will be announcing the amounts and charities our club will be giving donations to.

The charities are: The Penticton Regional Hospital, Moog House and the Canadian Cancer Society, and each will be presented with a cheque of well over $600. It is thanks to the generous contributions from the public that the club can auction off these stamps and collect and give the proceeds to our selected charities. We thank all of these generous people and encourage donors to keep on saving these stamps and stamp material for our club.

We can be reached at 2600 Cornwall Dr., Penticton, B.C. V2A 6X3, call 250-492-3875 or email gboersma@telus.net.

Our guest speaker will be Peter Ord, curator of the Penticton Museum and Archives ,who will be speaking on the plans for the upcoming 2014 Steam Power Celebrations.

Our next general meeting will be held Sept. 8 at the Penticton United Church, 696 Main St. in Penticton (Blue Church), starting at 2 p.m. Visitors are always welcome and we encourage parents to bring their children and have them learn the joys of stamp collecting.

Have a great summer.

Gus Boersma, president
