Congratulations to Steve Morger, a club member since 1992, is the newest Sequoia Stamp Club Life Member. Steve has been collecting stamps for over 70 years and his main interest is worldwide stamps up to 1940. He enjoys trading stamps and attending local stamp shows. He is a life member of the American Philatelic Society.
Steve has served as secretary of the Sequoia Stamp Club and currently is involved in both the silent and live auctions at club meetings. His honesty and integrity are above reproach, and he is highly respected by his fellow club members. He started the original PENPEX silent auction and continues to work at the show each year as a valued volunteer.
Steve does a lot of work behind the scenes at the club. Every year he drives out to Armadillo Willy’s in Foster City to pick up the food for the summer picnic. Because he is a member of Costco, he volunteers to shop for the PENPEX snack bar. He has even picked up a second cake for the awards banquet! He put together an interesting Disney exhibit when club members were asked to participate in a one-page exhibit project.
Steve is one of the friendliest and most active members of the Sequoia Stamp Club, rarely missing a meeting and always stepping up when asked to perform some service for the club. In 2012, he was selected for the APS “Sparkplug” Award which is given to a member who has gone out of his way to help the club. Steve is a deserving life member of the Sequoia Club.
