Grandparents Encouraged to Promote the Hobby

Although National Grandparents Day isn't until Sept. 12 this year, Education Director Henry Lukas at the Spellman Museum of Stamps & Postal History writes to let Round-Up readers know that the museum has declared next month as "Grandparents Month" and urges grandparents to introduce their grandchildren to stamp collecting.

Henry says that he hopes “the younger generation can learn from the older generation, the many benefits and joys that can come of starting a stamp collection.”

To encourage young people to consider taking up the hobby, the Spellman Museum of Stamps & Postal History on the Regis College campus in Weston, Mass is inviting grandparents to bring their grandchildren to the Museum during June to help them learn about stamps and stamp collecting.

Henry says, there will be many US commemorative stamps starting from the 1920’s that should bring back grandparents’ recollections of their collecting days.
