Redwood Empire Collectors Club

Copyright @ Redwood Empire Collectors Club (Stamps). All rights reserved.

Surely we all as collectors don't just limit our instinctive gathering desires to philately.  In each of us dwells the accumulation spirit and we tend to 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.  Don't be shy and bring something to show and share!

Thank you One and All for your fascinating presentations and we encourage all to come!

Any remaining dues for 2020 of $25 will also be collected by Kurt Schau.
