The year 2012 was a good year for our membership as we maintained our roster at just over 30 members. We had regular meetings once a month and managed at each of these meetings to raise funds for our designated charities: The Moog House and cancer research. We are proud that with the help of all the donations our club received, our club will be able to present larger cheques this year to these charities.
We encourage your readers to gather any and all incoming mail and keep the stamps affixed on it — yes we can use even the common ones. Those who have collections they wish to divest themselves of, we encourage you not throw it out but to give us a call — a member of the club will gladly help you in ascertaining the market value of your collection to see what if anything you could or should do with the collection. No collection, large or small, should be lost. For information please call Gus Boersma at 250-492-3875 or email him at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Starting Jan. 6, our club will have their regular meetings at The Penticton United Church, 696 Main St. in Penticton from 2–4 p.m. This will be an auction meeting where paid-up members may enter up to four items for sale. The general public is always welcome to attend our meetings and even bid on items for sale. New members are always welcome, and at $10 per annum, it’s quite affordable.
