2019 Annual Meeting
On November 13, 2019 the Society held its Annual Meeting, Open House & Exhibition. 55+ members and guests were in attendance. The co-Chairs were Len Kasper and Paul Petersen and our Hostess was Diane Meek. The public was invited to this great program, which has been amazingly successful since its inception. President Dr. Charles J. DiComo opened the Annual Meeting; Paul Petersen discussed the December holiday dinner and passed around the sign-up clipboard and Get-Well cards; Lou DiFelice shared the Treasurers Report; and Barbara Buchanan welcomed our guests by name and updated all that annual dues were being collected. This was followed by our two speakers: Richard Colberg spoke on “Philately Across the Pond” and Mike Bach presented a slide deck on “More than just a Victorian Mourning Cover.” After a short break with drinks, snacks and conversation, ex officio Hal Klein shared the 2020 slate of Officers, requesting a motion to keep the current slate in office – the vote was unanimous. To conclude the evening, 15 members presented their favorite items either mounted on the walls or displayed digitally on the two large monitors mounted in the meeting room. An amazing array of stamps, postal history, and ephemera was shared. The meeting was adjourned by President DiComo at 10:00 pm, wishing all a pleasant Thanksgiving.
