Our History

The Chenango Valley Stamp Club was organized November 2, 1951 when a small group met at the home of Dr. Rodney Mott in Hamilton. The charter members, besides Dr. Mott were Emery Bauer, Perrine Rockafellow, William Everts, Emest Betts, and Devere Card, with Mr. Bauer as Permanent Chairman and Mr. Rockafellow, Secretary.

Later meetings were held at the home of the charter members until September 1953 when the membership had outgrown the homes and it was decided to meet in the high school cafeteria. In the fall of 1957, meetings were moved to the Alton Lounge in the Student Union Building on the Colgate University campus, and then to the Alana Cultural Center at the university. The club formerly participated in CINCOPEX, a discontinued annual exhibition rotating between Sidney, Hamilton, Rome, Sherrill, and Utica.
