Kentpex Stamp Show and Bourse

The Stamp Collecting Round-Up had a cameo appearance in an exhibit at the fifty-first annual Kentpex Stamp Show and Bourse on Oct. 25-26 which was sponsored by the Kent Philatelic Society of Grand Rapids, Michigan.

The theme of the show was “The Dunes,” commemorating the tenth in the USPS’“Nature of America” series of stamps.

Shown above are Dick Walquist (Exhibition Chairman), Joe Scholten (publisher of the show’s flyers and program) and Carol Ligda-Wong (one of the exhibitors) in front of a pane about “The Great Lakes Dunes.”

These dunes are part of Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lake Shore near Empire, Michigan, and the Kent Philatelic Society was proud to show off one of their state’s jewels on the newly issued (October 2) stamps.

Carol's exhibit, “Fun With Duplicates,” had the Round-Up's Aug. 18 entry in it which was about a gentleman who used his duplicates to cover his car.

Kentpex 2008 boasted ten exhibits in 18 frames, 15 dealers, door prizes, stamp
give-aways at the youth table and well over 200 visitors.
