Stamp club makes donations to support charities

The Penticton and District Stamp Club is ready to start another season of stamp collecting and serving at the same time.

Dear Editor:

The Penticton and District Stamp Club is ready to start another season of stamp collecting and serving at the same time the community with the opportunity of making stamp donations which in turn are converted into cash for our chosen charities.

Our charities this year are: Moog and Friends Hospice House, Cancer Research, CNIB, and the South Okanagan Similkameen Medical Foundation.

Over the last six years, as a club, we have made close to $10,000 in cash donations.

All are welcome to have a look and see what and how we are enjoying an afternoon of auctioning and talking stamps.

If you have specific questions about your stamp collection, find your answers at one of our meetings or call Gus, or any other club member you know, for advice.

Annual membership fees are $15 for adults and $5 for youths. Visiting is free of charge but one has to be a member to place items in the auction. No membership needed to bid and buy.

Donations towards the auction and in turn to our charities can be made by calling: Gus Boersma at 250-492-3875 or email: gboersma@telus.net or deliver at 2600 Cornwall Dr., Penticton, B.C., V2A 6X3. Gus will pick up if so desired.

Over the summer months we have received many donations which will start to be auctioned off at our first meeting in September – come and find out how this works.

We thank all who have contributed cash and donations towards our auctions.
