Fifth Tuesday KPS Meeting

KPS Fifth Tuesday meetings are all about stamps.  There is no business nor philatelic program.  During this time you have the opportunity to pick through the club's huge inventory of foreign and United States stamps.  Before the meeting pay a visit to the KPS Market Place at this website and make a list of stamps you would like to purchase for your collection.  Go ahead and complete the sales form and be ready to purchase stamps when you arrive at the meeting.

Don't forget that club members are encouraged to set up a table to sell or trade their own stamps during this and all KPS meetings.
