Cebu Stamp Club members met again today at 2:00 PM for the monthly stamp meetup held at the 2nd floor of McDonalds Jones.
I was glad to see familiar faces in the meetup. Eyan Yu, Edmund Gruenbaum, Elbert Montuno, Reina Tugot, Dinah Potolin, Sharee Ann Trapa, Janice Benolerao with daughter, and newcomer Anthony Jackson Emit.
Although some begged off because of the Mayweather-Marquez boxing match, I appreciate the dedication and commitment of those who came.
Edmund left Germany a few days ago just to join the group while Elbert arrived from far away Zamboanga City in Mindanao.
I always give credit where credit is due. My sincere thanks and gratitude to all those who made the "Selyo At Kasaysayan 2009... A Tribute to Cory Aquino" stamp and photo exhibit at Ayala Center Cebu Mall a huge success, and for taking the time every month in attending the meetups.
Elbert Montuno excited everyone by donating again imported and expensive stamp mounts to the club. Sharee Ann Trapa, the club's very active secretary was tasked to evenly distribute the mounts to everyone who came.
The December stamp competition, "Cebu StampShow 2009" was discussed and the competition guidelines and entry form were shared to all.
Reina brought a lot of used Philippine stamps that kept the members busy and committed to donate additional frames to the club to be used in the December exhibition. My personal thanks to Reina for her commitment.
It was a very busy meeting, but we all went home happy and richer with stamps and some stamp mounts.
