Collectors ready with a stamp of approval
EVEN with philatelists becoming as rare as some collections, hundreds of people were still expected to attend the Stamp Get-Together later this month.
This will be the 50th annual event hosted by the Maryborough Wide Bay Philatelic Society.
Clubs from inter and intrastate will attend with their members having their own circuit book which will have stamps available to buy.
The event is open to the public and there will be a bargain table.
Regular dealers will be present with stamps, accessories, coins, phone cards and post cards.
There will be plenty of displays, lucky door prizes, inter-city stamp exchange books, raffle and an auction.
A sale by tender will also be held from 1.30pm.
Morning and afternoon teas as well as a light luncheon will be available - catered by the Baddow Scouts Group.
The Maryborough Wide Bay Philatelic Society will hold its Stamp Get-Together on Sunday, June 17 from 9am-3.30pm at St Mary's Parish Hall, Bazaar St (opposite the Post Office), Maryborough.
