Sponsor a Scout to Attend A Stamp Collecting Merit Badge Workshop

Thirteen Scouts from all over Southern California recently attended a stamp collecting merit badge workshop Saturday, Oct 26 in Northridge, Calif.

The 3-hour class covered postal history, types of stamps, soaking, mounting, albums and more. Scouts were also required to design a stamp.

Stamp Collecting Round-Up editor Don Schilling (shown above) conducted the workshop and would like to do more in the future. A $20 materials fee includes a workbook, tongs, hinges,$30 worth of stamps and other items for each scout who attends.
