On July 1, 2013, PENPEX 2013 will commence in 160 days. I know the excitement is overwhelming. The anticipation of being able to visit a local show that is within 40 miles of your home and to visit with friends while sitting at stamp and cover dealer tables, makes for a fun day for a philatelist.

PENPEX 2013 is planning to have 18 dealers including the U.S.P.S who will be there on Saturday. The show will also have its renowned silent auction with over 500 lots. Something can be found for anyone from an individual mint stamp, boxes of philatelic material, or stamp catalogues all at great prices.

PENPEX could not happen with the generous volunteers who donate their time in helping with contacting all the dealers, getting exhibitors to display their collection, set up and take down of the show, helping with the welcome table and youth area, serving food at the snack bar, assisting people at the auction, preparing for the awards banquet, and producing the show program.

Some specific details are already available on our website, www.penpex.org, thanks to our webmaster. We are always looking for more volunteers. We can use your help if you have an hour during the show or a couple hours before the show.

We look forward to seeing you on December 7 or 8, at PENPEX 2013.

Kristin Patterson, PENPEX Chair
