Joining & Meetings

The club meets 1st & 3rd Fridays of each month (also 5th Fridays, in months that have one) at 7:30pm at the  “Reformed Church of Syracuse, 1228 Teall Avenue, Syracuse NY”   just South of its intersection with James Street (NYS-290).  See map here.  Doors open at 6:30. New members and guests are welcome at any time and should check in with a club officer when arriving. The club is always looking for new members of all kinds, from beginners to specialists!  Come to any meeting and ask for a membership application; or, download the application from the “Forms & Documents” page, print it out, and fill it in ahead of time.  The application must be read at two separate meetings, with the candidate present, before it is voted on by the members.

Membership in the Syracuse Stamp Club is a modest $12/year, but the benefits are worth far more than that:

Club Library

Members may borrow items from the club’s extensive library of philatelic reference materials, videos, and stamp catalogues, available at all meetings.  Items may be borrowed for 2-3 weeks.  Visit the Forms & Documents page to see an inventory of our holdings and view the library listing and rules.

Auctions, Circuits, and Sales

Add to your collection at our monthly stamp auction, or make room in your albums by offering items for sale.  Browse through the circuit books available at each meeting.  They’re filled with stamps, miniature sheets, covers, postal history and stampless covers.  Participate in swap & shops, where you and all of your fellow members are “dealers for a night.”  Enjoy good bargains and the thrill of the find!  Read a newspaper feature about our auctions by clicking here.

Entertaining Programs and Speakers

The club sponsors a wide array of activities at our meetings: show and tell nights, where club members display and describe an item from their collections; speakers on various philatelic subjects; and fun events such as quizzes and STAMPO (like BINGO, but played with stamps!)  For an idea of the type of programs we offer, check out the coming events on the home page.

We hope to see you soon!
