Our next meeting is February 11th at our usual location.  Our usual meetings feature a meal which can be bought from the restaurant's menu. 

The meeting place is Cafe Bellini in Petaluma.

THE MEETING IS February 11th- SUNDAY at 11:30 AM at the Cafe Bellini

                                      Hello Fellow RECC Members and Past Members,                              

 You and your spouse or important other are cordially invited to our meeting at Cafe Bellini in Petaluma (at the corner of East Washington and S. McDowell Boulevard).

The presentation for this meeting is a look at "Unusual Stamps" worldwide. 

Many differences that have appeared over the years include special effects on stamps that will surely interest an avid collector.  Stamps with 3D images, special scents, color changes, special shapes and very different themes will be shown in a Power-Point slide review.  Perforation differences and ways of handling unique shapes will be seen as well and also special purpose stamps that will probably never be used for postage. Stamps as a communication and fun media will be explored.  Come see this program which has been put together by Victor Ivashin and presented by our own Lloyd Chan.

Thank you Victor and Lloyd!

Co-Presidents Nancy Jensen and Sharon Oman are organizing RECC meetings to be held in 2024. 

This meeting will be presided by Presidents Sharon Oman and Nancy Jensen.

We need you to be at this get-together meeting for the following reasons:

There will be a "Show and Tell" for 5 to 6 minutes per one or two items.  Please bring something to share.  Ideas may include "A Stamp Gift", "What I am Searching For", "My Favorite Item" or any other.  We promise to be fascinated!

Member Dues of $25 for 2024 must be paid at this meeting or by sending to Kurt Schau, P.O. Box 659, Petaluma CA 94953.   Checks also are fine if given to Nancy or Sharon at the meeting.

Requests will continue to be at hand for presentations in the New Year. Thank you so much for volunteering!

You may bring items for sale at the meeting as Dan will handle that part of our get-together.  Unsold items go back to the owner.

So in general please come as we need you to:

        1.To vote on important meeting details for the coming year.
       2. See what special philatelic item members bring to show and talk about.
       3. Add some stamps, covers, postal history or other items to your collection
       4. Share your talent, skills, experiences and knowledge with our members.

                 Nancy Jensen always graciously mails the agenda , thank you Nancy.

It is a good time for us to 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.  Perhaps 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 Sharon Oman 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.
