Message from the President

March 2021

The March meeting marks the one-year anniversary of non-physical meetings at the Greene Foundation and resumption is not in the foreseeable future. We will continue with our monthly ZOOM meetings until further notice. These meetings are being well attended bringing you excellent presentations. If you haven’t already joined us for one, please put it on your calendar. Your Executive continues to work hard keeping the Society up to date with current activities in the Philatelic world and our newsletter is diligently passing on this information.

The PSSC executive has approved in principle $2000.00 to CAPEX 22 in hopes we can sponsor the Grand Prix award for the Literature Competition, or one of the other Grand Prix awards. If this is not possible, we would alternately sponsor the Literature Competition Medals. We are gratefully accepting donations from any member to supplement our amount. We plan to take out an ad in the CAPEX 22 show program acknowledging those donors. Donations can be made online through our PayPal account or by sending a cheque to The Greene Foundation at 10 Summerhill Ave., Toronto, ON M4T 1A8. Thank you in advance for your generosity.

We will be reserving a meeting room for a Meet and Greet followed by a philatelic presentation at CAPEX 22. Ken Lemke and I will be looking for a candidate to make this presentation. Suggestions are always welcome.
