Interested in Stamps?
You have come to the right place! Our Stamp Club is friendly, and welcomes all visitors!
Our club's goal is to promote friendly relations and fellowship between stamp collectors. We enjoy exchanging stamp news. We provide a meeting ground for all members to acquire and dispose of stamps and related material. We promote the stamp collecting hobby through outreach. We sponsor several stamp shows each year.
Our membership list includes individuals from Lane County Oregon, but we also have members who reside outside of the county and a few from outside of the state of Oregon. We are an affiliate of the American Philatelic Society.
