Welcome to the Mesa Stamp Club!

COVID and FLU News Update for Winter 2023/24 Season:

As with any gathering, members are requested to respect those who attend that may need to wear a mask.  There's more out there than just COVID this season.  

On the brighter side - if we're all more healthy, that'll give us more reasons and time to collect more of those little bits of works of art!

Thank you!

Founded March 28, 1973, the Mesa Stamp Club offers a world-wide membership interest in philately.

Our organization has been an American Philatelic Society member since July 31, 1975.

Wow!  Not many clubs have such a neat activity such as our Auction!  Members are encouraged to bring in their duplicates, surplus inventory or Ebay excesses and have fun selling and buying!  Often times members donate lots to be sold to benefit the club.  You won't regret coming for this!




Honestly?  Visit one of our monthly meetings and see why we've been around for over 4 decades!   Heck - we'll even throw in free coffee and sometimes a cookie or two!  If you decide to join us it's only $6.00 a year for 12 fun packed meetings PLUS a Christmas Potluck Party to boot!


Not all meeting days are listed below!

2023 Dates:

Nov 15 - There were 21 members in attendance.

Tom Reyman discussed progress of the preparations for the AZ Stamp Show which is being co-sponsored by the club and will take place February 16-18, 2024.  In part, he reported that the plans for the layout of the floor has been completed.  He also asked for volunteers to work before and at the show and said that volunteers from the club would also get a lunch voucher.  Tom said that each day's admission to the show would be $1.00.

Tom Smith presented a program involving the history of the Phoenix Stamp Club, which evolved into the Phoenix Philatelic Association and shared the information that PPA and its predecessor - combined - is 100 years old, having been founded in 1923. After additional discussion, we were reminded that the Mesa Stamp Club started in March, 1973 and is therefore 50 years old.

The next meeting will be December 20 and the club's annual pot luck will take place. Members volunteered to bring various dishes to the meeting. It was also decided that there won't be a gift exchange this year. 

The monthly stamp auction took place and the meeting adjourned.
