This is to inform your readers that as of last September until our meeting on May 6, the Penticton and District Stamp Club has been able to raise $315 for each the Cancer Society and the Moog and Friends Hospice House. Cheques will soon be presented to these two charities. The funds were raised through the auction of donated stamps to our club, which comes down to approximately $70 per regular meeting from our membership.
We are proud of our accomplishment and hope to do more in the future if the community support is there. Even though the Stamp Club is in recess until September, people who wish to donate can do so throughout the summer by contacting Gus Boersma at 250-492-3875 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. The behind-the-scenes work doesn’t stop and we do need more material for auction to start the new club year in September.
Gus Boersma, president
