Edmonton Stamp Club
ESC OUR STORY
The world’s first postage stamp, England’s famous Queen Victoria Penny Black, appeared in May, 1840. Stamp collecting started the very next day and swept the world, touching down in Edmonton, Alberta in 1912 when a group of stalwarts met to form the Edmonton Stamp Collector’s Club. Edmonton’s two newspapers featured stamp columns and several downtown stamp shops became gathering places for keen collectors.
The Edmonton Stamp Club grew from its dozen male members to an enthusiastic group of over 500 stamp families who have met continuously for over 100 years to buy, sell, trade and learn about stamps. In early days, the Club met in Edmonton’s downtown Library. The current Monday meeting place is the St. Joe’s High School cafeteria which is in keeping with the friendly, family nature of the Club. New members and visitors are always welcome to share in the evening’s fun and fellowship……..
Thanks to your generosity, the Edmonton Stamp Club has been able to collect over 730 LBS of non-perishable food, to donate to Edmonton's Food Bank in the last year.
The ESC are proud to partner with
Edmonton's Food Bank, to help provide food to those who need it the most in the Edmonton area!
Giving back and supporting communities is important to the Edmonton Stamp Club. For the September 2022 charity month the ESC was able to collect and donate $220.00
to the Parkinson Association Of Alberta, to help fund their mission of supporting, educating and inspiring people impacted by Parkinson disease .
