Summer is a time for vacations, seeing family, cooking out, and working on our stamps. Not necessarily in that order as many of us attempt to try to work on our stamps whenever time permits.

If you live in Northern California or like to travel, the big 4-day annual APS StampShow will be held in Sacramento, California on August 16 to 19. The show will have 150+ dealers, 900+ frames of stamp exhibits, philatelic auctions, First Day Ceremonies, meetings & seminars, and beginners & youth programs. The show offers something for any collector. For more information visit the APS website, http://stamps.org/STAMPSHOW-SS.

The Sequoia Stamp Club offers much for local collectors from auctions, presentations, local news, question and answering opportunities, circuit books, and fun with friends. Included in this monthly news eBlast are the upcoming Sequoia Stamp Club activities and area stamp shows.
