Last Meeting before the summer break.

Purpose: We are gathering questions for our first fall meeting which will be on Wed, 9th September 2009.

Help us form a quality program for September. We need to get your inputs on the questions and area of interests that you would like to know more about. Over the course of the summer break, our senior philatelist will do research in that area for you and come back with a presentation.

Here are some of the types of questions that we have thought of thus far.
1. Have you ever had problems water marking a stamp?
2. Are you familiar with resources available on the internet?
3. Can you tell the difference between blue and white paper on US Stamps?
4. Any other topic that you might want to bring up…..

Bring a friend or fellow collector. Or better yet, bring them on 9th September when this question will be answered.

Other Notes:
1. We no longer have a post office box at the Darien Post Office. Please send your mail to the appropriate officer.
