As I have mentioned in the past, PENPEX’s success is due to its great volunteers, experienced dealers, willing exhibitors, and enthusiastic attendees. Without any of these, the show would be lacking some of its fun. All shows are looking for more of all these people. If you are interested in volunteering at PENPEX, there is room for everyone. We are always looking for people to help before, during, and after the show. If you can write, organize, plan things, and enjoy being with stamp collectors, then we have a task for you. Please contact Kristin for more details at PenpexRedwoodCity@yahoo.com.
