Welcome to the Calhoun County Stamp Club
The purpose of the club is to foster, develop and otherwise enhance the avocation of stamp collecting. It is particularly interested in assisting new collectors, both children and adults. The dues today are just $5 per year. Interested persons are always welcome to attend the meetings and need not apply for membership immediately.
The membership of the Calhoun County Stamp Club is normally about twenty and nearly half are very active in local, state and national philatelic societies and activities. The late Dr. Gary Yunker wrote a monthly nationally syndicated column for Stamp World. Dr. Phil Koerper, a past president, has judged statewide stamp shows. Parks King, Chris Sherwood,and Dr. Koerper have also exhibited selected portions of their collections in state and regional shows. The late Robert Effinger and Dr. Gary Yunker both judged and exhibited in national and international shows, and Mr. Effinger was the posthumous recipient of the Rowland Hill Award in 2007.
Meetings are the second Tuesday of each month, except in December, in room 123, Brewer Hall on the campus of Jacksonville State University at 7:00 p. m. They usually consist of a short business session, followed by a program presented by a member or guest. At the club meetings, members exchange information on stamps, discuss collecting ideas and the programs that are presented at the meetings. Each quarter there is a stamp swap and sale during which members and guests are encouraged to bring in their duplicates and unwanted items of philatelic interest for trade or sale
