Happy New Year to All:

PENPEX 2011 Stamp Show was held at the Redwood City Community Activities Building on December 3 & 4, 2011. The show had 18 dealers, 64 frames of exhibits, a youth area, silent auction, and two show cachets. The free show was well attended both days maybe partly due to the great California weather.

The success of the show is due to the many Sequoia Stamp Club members. The volunteers help in planning the show, soliciting for exhibits, setting up tables, chairs, and frames, organizing and managing the silent auction, manning the welcome table, selling show cachets, running the snack bar, and finally cleaning up afterwards. The show is fortunate to have such great people helping.

The History of PENPEX will continue to be uploaded to the website. Please take a moment to look through it as I am sure it will bring back fond memories of past shows.

PENPEX is run by Sequoia Stamp Club members. The club offers much for local collectors from auctions, presentations, local news, and question answering opportunities. Included in this monthly news eBlast are the upcoming Sequoia Stamp Club activities and area stamp shows.
