           Our June Meeting will have a Presentation by  Kurt Schau

     Stephen Tedesco - Vice President of RECC and WinePex Exhibit Chair

"It is my pleasure to recently  become the Vice President of RECC and to further be your

Exhibit Chair for this year's WinePex Stamp Show.  I have been in philately for most of my

life and knowing the pleasure and pride that comes from exhibiting at stamp shows I sincerely wish your participation either as exhibitor, attendee or both.  Single frame exhibits permit very specialized displays and having won "Single Frame Champion of Champions" with one of mine I can truly say there is no limit with what is possible.  My very first exhibit was at WinePex!

                            "Guernsey German Occupation 1941 to 1945"


Our club member and guest speaker Kurt Schau will be giving his presentation

for RECC with a discussion of the postal history of this period as told through

covers that illustrate postal rates and usages.

The German occupation of the Channel Islands lasted for most of the

Second World War, from 30 June 1940 until their liberation on 9 May 1945.

The Bailiwick of Jersey and Bailiwick of Guernsey are two British Crown

dependencies in the English Channel, near the coast of Normandy.

This part of history is seldom reviewed and covers and stamps from this period

are quite difficult to find. Our speaker is expert in such studies and is a well known

and excellent speaker... so please attend!  Thank you Kurt Schau for your presentation!
