As I write this, I have been in office two months as SSC President and have enjoyed every minute of it. People have commented that they are grateful for putting a speaker system in place. One 5-year member said that this was the first time he had heard an entire meeting.
At the meeting on February 25, each attendee was given a SSC 2014 Yearbook which included a list of committee members, complete 2014 SSC schedule, photos from last year activities, and a current and up to date member roster. Also, a Member Handbook was distributed to members who had not received the 2012 SSC 65th Anniversary Book. I want to thank Ken Perkins, Jim Giacomazzi, Paul Swierstra, and Dar Hickok for helping me get the two books to members so quickly. Paul is now actively delivering the Yearbook to members who could not attend. In April, members who have not received a Yearbook will be mailed one.
I also want to thank Leroy Harbaugh for serving as SSC librarian for the past 15 years. As the librarian, Leroy has made available to members the club’s current Scott Catalogues along with many other resource books. Leroy has decided to pass on the role to Craig Butterworth, who has graciously volunteered to serve as the current SSC librarian.
Remember to check the website for the most recent schedule, which includes local stamp shows. The newest Member Handbook is always available on the Sequoia Stamp Club page. I look forward to seeing you at a meeting soon.
Kristin Patterson, Sequoia Stamp Club President
