The U.S. Stamp Society will once again have a booth at the annual APS StampShow. The show will be held from August 20th through the 23rd at the DeVos Convention Center, 303 Monroe Avenue NW in Grand Rapids, Ml and we will have our booth manned for the full four days of the s how. The Society will pitch its tent al booth R where we will have a full supply of all the Society publications on hand. There will be special show discounts on certain items, so be sure to stop by and check out the savings.
If you also happen to be an APS member, be sure to get to the show early and pick up one of the free coupon books being given to the first 2,000 APS members who arrive. The book contains 60 different coupons good for discounts and other promotions at various dealers. One of the coupons is for a 50% discount on all of our publications on hand at our booth. This is the perfect opportunity for you to fill in those missing volumes in your philatelic library. If you don’t happen to be an APS member, you can sign up at the s how and receive the coupon book for as long as the supply lasts. As is our tradition, we will hold a Dutch Treat dinner on Friday evening after the show closes. Please stop by the Society booth and sign up for what is certain to be a very enjoyable evening of food and camaraderie.
Details are still being worked out, but all necessary information will be available at the booth. We could really use help staffing our booth and any time you could spare to do so will be greatly appreciated. In addition to those who volunteer, we will have our officers, Board members, committee chairs and authors helping out. This will be the place to meet old friends and make new ones. Please contact me if you can help out. We look forward to see in g a large contingent of our members at this great show. When StampShow was last held in Grand Rapids in 2005, the venue, the hotel s and the show itself were top notch. Make your plans to attend as a good time is sure to be had by all.
