Postmaster Wants to Starts Stamp Club

An local postmaster is looking to start a stamp-collecting club according to the Statesman Journal in Salem,Oregon.

Though not currently a stamp collector himself, Raymond Berg collected stamps as a child and is a board member of the Salem Stamp Society.

Berg is quoted in the article by Denise Ruttan as saying,"People have brought it to my attention that they would like to learn about stamps. For a stamp club, what I would like to do is to start out with people swapping stamps with other collectors."

Berg goes on to say,"There are so many stamps out there, it's exciting. In stamp collecting, you can collect whatever you want. In topical collecting, you pick a topic. Some people want to collect horses, airplanes, flags, cartoons or angels. There's hundreds of thousands of stamps."
