(Chairs: Darlene Hickok and Richard Coleman.  Committee members: Leroy Bertsch, Kjell Enander, Gil Goodrich, Hank Shoolman, and Henry Washauer.)

The next meeting of the Youth Group is scheduled for Friday Jan. 20, 1 to 5 pm.  Any volunteers are welcome to attend.

The Sequoia Stamp Club Youth committee had a very successful PENPEX show, signing up 12 new members.  The Youth Room was one of the busiest areas of the show, where kids were bombarded with free stamps, supplies, brochures, and a ton of fun projects for beginning stamp collectors. The Boy Scout merit badge workshop was successful with 24 participants. If you know some potential young collectors, tell them about the Sequoia Stamps R Us Youth Club.  It will give them a sense of belonging along with a club T-shirt and quarterly mailings with stamps and philatelic activities.  Membership fees are only $5.00 annually.  A membership application is available online in the youth section of the Sequoia Club website, from any of our youth club members, or contact Darlene Hickok at (650) 366-6132 or via email at dar@aol.com.
