RA STAMP CLUB

The RA Stamp Club has served as a meeting place for local stamp collectors for approximately 60 years. The club’s program is organized to interest stamp collectors from the novice to the specialist. Guests and prospective members are welcome and encouraged to drop in to any meeting.

Club meetings are held every Monday from 7:30PM to 9:30pm, September through May. Club activities traditionally include trading, selling, auctions, quizzes and speakers. Click here to view the 2021 Winter/Spring Schedule.

 

WINTER/SPRING 2021 – We have Returned-to-Play!

With the most recent lockdown announcement by the Province of Ontario on December 21, the RA Centre was forced to shutter its doors for a second time in what has proven to be an extremely challenging nine (9) months. Although this current provincewide shutdown has affected the vast majority of RA programs and services, the activities of the RA Stamp Club will fortunately be able to continue to operate - albeit differently- because of the innovative approach of the Club’s volunteers and how beautifully stamp activities lend themselves to a virtual platform. In early September, the Club began hosting regular Monday meetings online through “Zoom”. Based on the success of these meetings over the last several months, the Club plans to continue with this online format into 2021 – Click here to view the 2021 Winter/Spring Schedule. We ask that you take a moment to review the RA Stamp Club Return-to-Play document.


In addition, the club usually hosts two annual stamp events: MINIEX in February, which is a gathering of all the stamp clubs in the Ottawa area, and ORAPEX in May which is a two-day National Stamp Show attracting around forty dealers and thirty exhibitors from across Canada. Unfortunately due to COVID-19, these two annual events have been postponed.
