Cobb County Stamp Club
 


# 1184-118815

Welcome to the Cobb County Stamp Club

The Cobb County Stamp Club was organized in 1979, during a stamp show held at the South Cobb Mall sponsored by the Atlanta Stamp Club. The founding members were Jim Jordan and John Kovalski. Since then the club has grown to over forty members. A good number of our Club’s members are also members of other stamp clubs in the Atlanta area, all of which are members of the Southeast Federation of Stamp Clubs. The main purpose of the SFSC is the annual sponsorship of the Peach State Stamp Show held each September (a WPS show under APS). Our Club is also a member of the American Philatelic Society (Chapter #118815).

Our Club sponsored the first COCOPEX show in 1983. The theme was “Commemorating 250 Years of Georgia Agriculture “ and it was an official event of the Georgia Semiquincentenary Commission. Annually, our Club sponsors a COCOPEX show in Cobb County.

Throughout the years our Club has had many past presidents, with some serving more than one year. Among them were Jim Jordan, Lindsey Garrison, Frank Fogle, Jim Hart, Bill Beck, Holly Hart, Susan Solida, Paul MacDonald, Jim Wentzell, Neil Boatwright, Jerry Goldoff and our current president Cass Rejent.

Membership includes a wide range of experience and collecting interests, from worldwide dealers (with over forty years of experience), to persons that only collect a specific country, to novices. All are welcome.

Regular meetings are held on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of each month (except for conflict with other stamp shows and holidays). Our meetings start promptly at 1:30 PM with about fifteen minutes of club/SFSC business matters, followed by a raffle (tickets are twenty-five cents each) and then an auction of items for sale by the members (there are no commissions for either the buyer or seller). At the meeting held on the second Sunday of the month, after our business portion, we usually have a guest speaker (member) discuss for ten to twenty minutes a specific area of the hobby that most interests the speaker (sort of “show and tell” format).
