NEWS  REPORT  FOR  MARCH 2020

 

   The Orange Coin & Stamp Club Inc advises that its 2-day, 2020 Orange Coin & Stamp Expo, planned for Saturday 18th April and Sunday 19th April 2020 at the Orange High School Hall has been cancelled.

 

   On 17th March the Business Service Manager of Orange High School advised that:-  

"In light of the recent matters associated with Coronavirus I am going to have to advise that PAC will not be available during the holidays for your event. The School does not have any cases of the virus, but as a precaution for our student body we are postponing any use of our facilities. 

Sorry and I hope that you understand." 

 

  Due to concerns for Club members’ health, the Club meetings (held on the last Tuesday in each month at the Orange Cultural Centre) have been cancelled, for at least the 31st March and 28th April 2020 dates, and possibly later.

   The monthly coin and stamp fair held in the Orange Cultural Centre for the first Saturday of each month has been cancelled for 4th April 2020.  This event for 3rd May 2020 may also need to be cancelled.

 

   With an uncertain winter ahead, members are hoping to use the time to sort out their collections.  We will need to get used to interacting on the internet.

 

   Pdf copies of the Club’s monthly Newsletter will be available on the PHILAS website, or by contacting the secretary:
