Message from the President

This last year has been very difficult due the Covid pandemic. However, we are not only
surviving but keeping our members engaged with many activities: monthly newsletters,
monthly Zoom meetings with very interesting guest speakers, circuit book sales, auctions,
and an outstanding virtual stamp exhibit in early 2021.

Our club remains very active as our 20-member volunteer Committee prepares for our
100th birthday in 2022. We expect to hold a live, in-person exhibition and stamp show as
our premiere event for our anniversary which we will celebrate at the Hyatt Hotel
downtown. This show, in addition to being held as our annual CALTAPEX exhibit, will
not only be co-hosted by the British North America Philatelic Society (BNAPS), and run
as their annual BNAPEX show, but our show has also been sanctioned as a national level
exhibit by the Royal Philatelic Society of Canada (RPSC)!

One of the highlights will be our catered night out at The Military Museums (TMM).
TMM consists of seven independent museums (navy, army, air force & regimental), an
art gallery, a military library, and a museum gift shop. FYI, the Naval Museum has a real
Enigma machine on display!
