Wagga wagga stamp & Coin club inc.
Although our club held a meeting in July, restrictions on travel from Victoria have forced us to cancel meetings from August. Watch this web page for future developments.
See the report of the July meeting below. Dave Blackman gave his display of Captain Cook.
This friendly club caters for stamp collectors of all levels (from beginners to advanced collectors) within the Wagga Wagga City area and surrounding towns. The monthly meetings consist of a short business meeting (30/45 minutes) followed by a display by one of the members, supper and a sale by tender.
Two large sale by tender events (no display on these nights) are held each year and in November a five page, competitive members display is held. A monthly newsletter is mailed to members.
