The April meeting -- regular time and place: Scottish Rite Center at 4090 Commercial St. SE, 7:00 p.m. -- will feature a presentation by George Stellingwerf on forgeries and counterfeit stamps.  Do you know the difference between a counterfeit and a forgery?  No?  Aha; you should come listen!

Our meetings are also accessible by Zoom.  Write to several days before the meeting for the Zoom invitation.

Our club will have its own club exhibit at the PIPEX stamp show in Portland May 5-7.  We need more pages from members.  Bring one to four pages to our April meeting, where Lisa Janz is assembling the exhibit.

We also need some volunteers at PIPEX, both to staff our club table and to fill various functions for the show itself.  To volunteer a shift at the SSS table, tell Lisa Janz.  To volunteer for other shifts, sign up on the PIPEX website.

Looking ahead to our Club  meetings:

May 17: Bid board, Society Library book sale, and George Struble will present "Getting Swiss Airmail Off the Ground: 1913-1923," the same talk he will give to the American Air Mail Society at PIPEX.

June 21: Club Auction and members' show-and-tell

July 19: Members' Auction

Our Spring STAMPEX was March 19 -- a great success.  See the accounts in the April Newsletter (click on the "Newsletter" tab above).

Tell Mike Braet if you are willing to provide a "Frame of the Month" at one of our meetings.

Salem Stamp Society has a new way to contact the leaders of the club: a club email address  That mailbox will be checked frequently, and emails received will be forwarded to an appropriate person.
