Warragul & Drouin Gazette - - NEWS -

With thoughts of good food to be con­sumed, War­ragul Philatelic So­ci­ety had a strong at­ten­dance for its last meet­ing of the year.

The So­ci­ety re­ceived a pre­sen­ta­tion plaque from Drouin Com­mu­nity Bank, who will be sup­port­ing the stamp and coin fair in June.

So­ci­ety val­uers have been check­ing out some col­lec­tions re­cently, some be­yond the So­ci­ety’s means, one un­cer­tain and one bought. The So­ci­ety ap­pre­ci­ate their ef­forts.

Other clubs were re­ported on and seem to be func­tion­ing well, which is good for the hobby.

Sev­eral club mem­bers have had med­i­cal prob­lems dur­ing the year, but ap­pear to be com­ing good now. The So­ci­ety wish them all the best for the com­ing year.

Two mem­bers at­tended the Mor­well club an­nual gen­eral meet­ing and were im­pressed by the amount of work in the dis­play and talk on the rise and fall of the Aus­tralian au­to­mo­bile in­dus­try.

The So­ci­ety are still chas­ing de­tails re­gard­ing its pro­posed name change. More de­tails will be pro­vided at a later stage.

The next stamp auc­tion has been booked for March 23 in the War­ragul RSL hall.

The monthly club com­pe­ti­tion on Fa­ther Christ­mas was won by B Hodges, sec­ond was B By­wa­ter with J Mow­bray third.

The over­all win­ner for the 2018-year club com­pe­ti­tion was J Hew­son, fol­lowed by J Hill and J Mow­bray. The club con­grat­u­lated all who en­tered and of­fered such in­ter­est­ing and high stan­dard con­tri­bu­tions.
