Dear Editor:

I was asked to give an update on monies raised to date by the Penticton and District Stamp Club over the last six-and-a-half years.

The Cancer Society has received $3,768; Moog House (Hospice) received $2,239. The Penticton Regional Hospital (the favourite from our donors) has received $5,975 mostly for their equipment fund. Our latest addition, the Canadian National Institute of the Blind and White Cane Club in Penticton, has received $610.

The total of all donations so far adds up to $12,482.

All of this money comes from members of the club who bid on items up for sale in our monthly auctions.

Our club meets the first Sunday of the month (except during holiday times) September to May at the Penticton United Church from 2 to 4 p.m. All are welcome to visit and bid on auction items.

To make donations of stamp material please call Gus Boersma 250-492-3875; email at gboersma@telus.net or bring to 2600 Cornwall Dr.

We thank the community at large for their support.

Gus Boersma
