On Sunday, the Penticton and District Stamp Club will be having the last general stamp club meeting of the season. This last meeting will feature a massive stamp auction where we will sell most of the leftover donations to the stamp club, whose proceeds will go to the Moog House and/or cancer research.
Our club has been fortunate to receive so many donations which the members gladly pay for because they also know where the proceeds are going. Guests are always welcome to these auctions and they can and should make bids on the goods available. To place items into the auction, however, a person has to be a paid-up member.
On June 3, we will have our AGM, at which time we will be electing our new executive. The stamp club this year was able to donate $200 to the South Okanagan Seniors Wellness Society to help them reach their goal of raising $10,000 towards the 2013 Seniors Symposium. We thank the community at large and the editorial department of your paper for publishing our letters to the editor. Without this generosity, we as a club, and many other not-for-profit organizations, would be hard pressed to find an outlet to inform the community at large.
The Penticton and District Stamp Club next general meeting will be on Sept. 9. Donations of stamps and stamp material are always welcome by calling Gus Boersma at 250-492-3875 or email: email@example.com. Have a great summer and see you in the fall.
Gus Boersma, president
Penticton and District Stamp Club
