Boy Scout Stamp Collecting Merit Badge Workshops Being Planned
This past weekend at the ORCOPEXPO stamp show in Anaheim/Garden Grove, Calif., the eleven scouts shown above got their Scout Stamp Collecting Merit Badge.
The 4-hour work shop consisted of a history of stamps and stamp collecting, different types of stamps, different types of collections, different types of albums, mounting stamps and covers, use of catalogs and various tools of the hobby.
A big thank you to the Philatelic Society of Los Angeles, American Philatelic Society and Mystic Stamp Company for helping to underwrite the cost of putting on the workshop and providing materials for these fine young men.
If you would like to donate stamps or other items for several other upcoming workshops being planned in Southern California, contact Don Schilling at firstname.lastname@example.org.
