NEXT CLUB MEETING will be on March 16th

Meeting starts at 6:00 PM at the Boulevard Cafe in Petaluma. 

The meeting features a dinner which is a single entre (salmon)

for $33.  This includes a salad and a desert. 

After the dinner we will have our presentation from our speaker.

Our guest speaker is our own Stan Turrini.  His classic presentation that is enjoyed by all is "What Is In The Box!".  Stan brings many collectible items from his personal treasure chest and will present several along

with comments and stories.  These talks have

been enjoyed by all and will bring humor and

memories. 

                      Come and listen to Stan!

                 Thank you Stan for the presentation!


It is a time that we continue we continue to share our collecting interests in both philately and in other collections.  As collectors we at times don't just limit our instinctive gathering desires to philately.  In each of us dwells the accumulation spirit and we often seek those elusive, mysterious and precious items that warm our hearts.  This is your opportunity to present to the attention of the club what you also collect and in doing such we will all experience humor, fascination and wonder.  Please contact Dennis Buss or Victor Ivashin by

phone or email to arrange how we post your item in

our Member Philately section of this site.  Thank

you One and All  for sending something along while

we are sheltering in place as a result of this

horrendus virus.
