PHILAS House Open Days
Pictures from a typical PHILAS House Open Day.
Sadly, the only Open Day we were able to hold in 2021 was in June, when the Manly-Warringah Stamp Club provided the wall displays.
Open Days in 2022 will be:
Saturday 19 February PHILAS Collection display
Saturday 18 June Display from members of a club
Saturday 16 October Inter-club Competition
