FOR THE HERALD

Every year, members of the Lethbridge Philatelic Society look forward to the monthly meeting in May when the annual auction is held. This is a great opportunity to pick up philatelic material for collections, often at very reasonable prices.

Members of other local clubs are invited to come and bid on the lots, and also to submit material they would like to sell. It is a time for members to go through their collections and dispose of unwanted stamps and to bid on those stamps which they need. Recently, various old stamp collections and philatelic materials have been donated to the club to be disposed of.

Some of this has been sold at mini-auctions during the regular club meetings, but much of it is kept until the main auction in May.

Members of the public are very welcome to attend this auction. It is an opportunity for those “dormant” collectors to rekindle their enthusiasm in stamp collecting. Or perhaps an old collection lot will spark an interest in a young person to take up this wonderful hobby. Whatever the reason might be, everyone is welcome. Auction lots are plentiful and sell for just a few dollars and the bidding is fast, furious and fun.

The auction will be held Thursday in the Save-On Foods Meeting Room, and starts at 7 p.m. with lot viewing at 6:30 p.m.
