Philatelic Specialists Society of Canada

A Society of students of philately specializing in a large spectrum of subjects.

Message from the President

June 2021

By now most of us have had our second vaccinations for the Covid 19 virus and businesses are beginning to open their doors on a limited basis. Hopefully stamp shows will be able to do so as well. I know there are plans in the works for a couple in late August and all eyes will be on them to see how they fare out with the protocols dictated by the Province.

One of your last chances to qualify for the single frame competition for CAPEX 22 at the National Virtual Exhibition at Royal 2021 Royale sponsored by CANPEX 2021 held October 14-17. Please see the Royal’s web-site for further details and entry form.

David Piercy reports the Anthology “Non-Traditional Philately and its Ephemera (subtitle The Edge of Philately)” is shaping up with fifteen submitted or promised articles. There is still time to contact David if you would like your article to be included.

The 21 Club from the Lower Mainland of British Columbia is holding and part in person and part virtual meeting on July 1. As this is an exclusive club we are trying to get an invite so we can observe how it works and any difficulties which may arise. If it is successful we are hoping we can adapt it to our meetings once we resume at the Greene Foundation.

Your executive although mostly invisible, continues to work behind the scenes keeping the Society on an even keel and carry on to bring you first rate presentations.

Until the next time continue to stay safe.

Bob Vogel - President
