Cebu Stamp Club December 2009 Stamp Meetup

The Cebu Stamp Club regular stamp meetup is one activity I always look forward to attending every month. It is a meeting where we get to bond and interact with each other through our stamps.

The December meetup was held a week earlier taking into consideration the Christmas season. It's really great to see fellow members taking their time out just to be with the group.

Earlier today, my son Jerald Kervin's school Colegio dela Inmaculada Concepcion-Mandaue celebrated their Famvin Day. It's an annual school affair where families, students, teachers and friends come together so we had to be at the school since 8 a.m. till 1:30 p.m.

Good thing I arrived on time for the stamp meetup at 2 p.m. David Taylor and wife Marichu, Kenneth and Gina Turner, Eyan Yu, Dinah Potolin, Sharee Ann Trapa and Richard Guimbarda were all at the 2nd floor of McDonalds Jones, Cebu City.

I have to personally acknowledge the effort of Ken and Gina Turner who both have to take a 2 hour ride from their place in Catmon just to attend the meetup in Cebu City. I take my hats off to you guys!

David Taylor, our official representative to the United Kingdom brought a lot of stamps. He packed them by countries and topics and gave it all to everyone who were there. Thanks David for the freebies!

Aside from the upcoming stamp competition, we all agreed to have fun by holding a Christmas party this Sunday, December 20, 2009.

Our next stamp meetup will be on the second Sunday of January instead of the third owing to the annual celebration of the Sinulog festival of the City of Cebu. All roads in the parade area will be closed to traffic and incidentally, our meetup place is located right at the heart of the parade route.
