The PENPEX eBlast has not gone out in the last 2 months because I have been extremely busy traveling to stamp shows throughout the U.S. 2014 WESTPEX Souvenir SheetThe most recent was WESTPEX last weekend. The WESTPEX 2014 souvenir sheet is shown at right. I hope everyone was able to get to the show as there was something for everyone! Also, this is PENPEX volunteers’ time to relax before our next show on December 6 & 7.

PENPEX has always been a non-profit organization but is now planning on filing for 501c3 status. It is rewriting its bylaws and will be holding a committee meeting on Tuesday, May 13 at 6:00 pm at the Community Activities Building to discuss these changes.

Included in this monthly PENPEX eBlast are the upcoming Sequoia Stamp Club activities and bay area stamp shows. Guests are always welcome. Below is the 2014 schedule glimpse covering the next two months:

  • May 13 – Nigerian Scam Mail by Jim Sauer. Silent auction. **NEW**
