Established, Continuous since 1947
Some news about the Alameda Stamp club from the local Newspaper, theTimes-Star:
August 1, 1947- "Stamp Club Gaining New Members"
After the Alameda Stamp Club was founded in February, 1947, by A.C. Strickland. He was the club's first president. By August of 1947 Strickland had been awarded a Life Membership in the Club and had been succeeded as President by Arthur Christensen. Other club officers included Helen Michell, recording secretary; Paul Buechner and William Heck, treasurers; Mrs. Victor Sprogue, historian; Tracy F. Groesbeck, librarian; Ray Barbara, Evan Fabian, and Donald Thielbar, directors. By then club membership had grown rapidly to 90 adult and 13 juvenile members. Meetings were held on the second and fourth Thursday of the month at the High School cafeteria.
Club meetings included display of stamps and informal discussions. Perhaps a the discussion at one of their meetings in August, 1947, might have included this USPS Souvenir sheet.
