Our History

50 Years as an APS Club

The Western Monroe Philatelic Society was founded by a group of friends who enjoyed stamp collecting in February 1961. In 1963 they joined the American Philatelic Society as Chapter 560.

Although we lost our last founding member a few years ago the club is still going strong.

We meet each month and talk about stamps and will frequently have a club produced presentation on a variety of topics. Recent presentations have included early air mail covers, duck stamps, the World Colombian Exposition of 1893, watermarks and many more. We also have had guest speakers from other local clubs who recently gave talks about collecting Christmas Seals, the history of the Railway Post Office and stories about the postal service in exotic places around the world.

Members often bring in interesting items for show and tell or unusual items that might need some help from follow members for proper identification.

We regularly have silent auctions, buy, sell and trade stamps to each other and the popular Kiloware nights when we all dig through mountains of donated stamps looking for some lost treasures.

New members are always welcome, please come join us as we start another 50 years of exploring the world through stamp collecting.
