Last year’s Youth Room at PENPEX was probably the most interesting one in years. Committee members Coleman, Bertsch, and Shoolman covered the room assisted ably by Joan Doherty and my son, Billy. We signed up ten (10) new members, many from the Cub Scouts and private schools.
A PENPEX exhibitor from Sedona, Arizona, SIGNED UP, and will be replicating our Youth group in that state! She won the Silver Award for her Victorian exhibit at PENPEX. An educator, retired from the French International School in San Francisco, realizing the value of our hobby to entice children away from dangerous alternatives, will be promoting philately in the Redwood City school system.
