Cebu Stamp Club, Incorporated has been very consistent in holding its monthly meetups. For this November month, we decided to meet again on November 28, 2010 at our favorite restaurant venue at McDonald's Jones, Cebu City.
The meetup was well attended compared to last month with a new guest, Joel Tan joining the group and bringing along his old collection of Philippine stamps which he claimed he has collected for the past 50 years.
After a brief absence from the meetups due to an illness, Kenneth Turner also made his presence felt together with wife Gina. We admire the couple's commitment and dedication to the club. The effort they exerted in coming to our meetups is quite commendable. Living in far away north in the municipality of Catmon, they had to travel three hours just to be with the group in the city. Our hats off to you Ken and Gina!
The members were informed that Cebu StampShow 2010, a non-competitive stamp exhibit will be rescheduled for December with Eyan Yu, Richard Guimbarda, Jerald Kervin Uy and Richard Allan Uy coming up with entries. The venue will be at the lobby of the Cebu Central Post Office. Also, the new Philippine Stamp issues were made known to the group.
CSCI President Richard Allan Uy hinted that all 2010 issues of the CSCI Newsletter will be compiled in one disc and given for free to the members.
During the course of the meeting, Jerald Kervin Uy, the club president's son was given a round of applause for his successful modeling stint titled "Our Fairytale Christmas" held on November 17, 2010 at SM City Cebu's The Northwing Atrium.
President Rich Uy made sure that everyone who came got their share of stamp freebies. Secretary Sharee Ann Trapa announced to the group the upcoming club Christmas party tentatively scheduled for December 11, 2010.
The club thanks Ken and Gina Turner, Jerald Kervin Uy, Sharee Ann Trapa, Joel Tan, Janus Bariñan, Eyan Yu, Dinah Potolin and Ralph Ordiz for making the November meeting a very enjoyable one.
