Stamp Club Celebrates Half Century

AOL Patch editor John Celock reports New Jersey's Westfield Stamp Club has a packed agenda for their 50th anniversary year.

John pens, "Launched by a group of local stamp collectors, the group brought in stamp enthusists from around the county last week for their 49th annual stamp show. With a focus on stamps featuring in the Statue of Liberty this year, the group is looking to continue to unite area stamp collectors."

According to John, "One of the main goals of the group for the year is youth outreach. With many of the members over the age of 60, club leaders said they plan to reach out to local schools to promote the benefits of stamp collecting to students. Among the benefits are organizational skills, increased knowledge of American history and integrity, according to stamp club leaders."
