Good story about Fort Hamilton club meeting

The Fort Hamilton (Ohio) Philatelic Society, which celebrated its 7oth anniversary last year, got a nice write-up in the Hamilton News Journal yesterday.

Several of the members and Ken Martin of APS were quoted in the piece.

If your club is interested in getting some media attention, here's the outline the writer used.
  • Lead with an interesting quote about stamp collecting from a member.
  • Give the who, what, when and where of the club meeting.
  • Quote some other members about what they collect and why they collect it.
  • Give a little history and background on stamp collecting in general.
  • Provide additional contact information.

If you follow this format, your club meeting announcement will likely move off the calendar page and into the feature section.
