Our October’s Zoom meeting presentation by Earle Covert on “Illustrated Permit Mail” was well received as indicated by the amount of discussion after the presentation. It shows what can be done with modern third-class mail that normally might have been thrown out. I believe we all will be taking a second look at this material before it hits the blue box.
Once again it was good to see familiar and some not so familiar faces from coast to coast. We have yet to break the 50-barrier mark of attendees and hope we do so soon.
Royal 2021 Royale is now over with once again world class exhibits, congratulations to all the participants on the awards they received. As always PSSC members were well represented and hopefully more entries for CAPEX22 will be forthcoming.
It was good news that the Greene Foundation is reopening the Harry Sutherland Library for research (see details here http://www.greenefoundation.ca.
Local stamp shows and bourses continue to arise in the future and the announcement of ORAPEX 2022 is welcome news. Plans are afoot to resume our annual breakfast there with Leo Beaudet being out presenter. Leo is a holdover from 2021 and he will entertain us with his talk entitled “The Philatelic Scene during the Admiral Era”. Tickets will go on sale in the New Year.
Time is running out for your exhibit for our December one frame competition. Entries are limited so please contact Ken Lemke firstname.lastname@example.org and reserve your spot.
