meeting will start with a short business session, followed
by a mini-auction or educational program. Plenty of time
is then left for individual swapping of stamps, information,
We are a Stamp Show Club. Shows take a
lot of work to prepare and run, but nearly every member
takes an active part, which makes it easier and more fun.

and experiences as well as stamps. We have a wealth of knowledge,
which we are anxious to share with people of all ages and

runs about 20-25. Dues are $15.00 per year; junior memberships
of $5.00 are available for those under 18, with a maximum
of $22.50 for a whole family!
But above all, we are a Stamp Collecting

buy, sell, or just admire. Besides the auctions, we circulate
"circuit" books of stamps and covers from the
APS and other clubs, and maintain a "penny box"
of stamps from which members can search out inexpensive
