Preston Chiappa with volunteers Jim Giacomazzi and John Corwin sorting stamps for the youth group mailing.

A big mailing was sent out to youth club members in March. The mailings contained stamps, album pages, hinges, puzzles, and other related stamp items. The packets were sent to the 36 youth club members, including the six new members who were signed up during the recent PENPEX Show. Three work days were held prior to the mailing for sorting and organizing the packets. The work was supervised by Youth Chair Preston Chiappa assisted by volunteers John Corwin, Jim Giacomazzi, Ken Perkins, and Miriam Thurston.

It was an enjoyable task and more club members are encouraged to volunteer to work on the next big mailing. Members are also requested to donate any extra stamps to the Youth Group, especially colorful topical stamps that can be included in future mailings.
