All Star Stamp Clubs

As baseball's All Stars battle it out in St. Louis, the American Philatelic Society's All Star Stamp Club program continues to grow.

Currently there are 43 clubs throughout the United States helping promote stamp collecting among elementary and middle school-age children.

Members get an APS All Star Stamp Club membership card, certificate, a pin, and a philatelic birthday present. They also receive a quarterly newsletter, which will include tips from other youth leaders, program ideas, and reproducible pages to use at meetings.

There is a $10.00 (soon to be $15.00) annual fee. However, there is no cost to the individual members and club leaders receive free supplies such as stamps, hinges, etc.

If you are interested in starting a club in your area or have any questions please contact Janet Houser, Youth Coordinator, American Philatelic Society, 100 Match Factory Place, Bellefonte, PA 16823, phone: 814-933-3803 ext. 238. You can also e-mail Janet at ysca@stamps.org.
