 Items to be Given Away to BLSC Members ONLY

The John Spruhan Family has donated to the Big Lick Stamp Club, per Father John Spruhan's wishes, a HUGE collection of philatelic items, including publications, supplies, albums and other philatelic material.  At the October 16 meeting a fourth selection from this donation will be given away by way of drawings.  The third selection was given away in the same manner at the August 21 meeting.  A list of publications will be available here closer to the October 16 meeting.  You must attend this meeting to enter your name in the drawing for each item you would like to take home. 

 

Thank you to Kathy Schlicht for putting together this HUGE donation for club members.
